Some time in the near future the Y. M. C. A. will erect a raagnifloent bnildinor on the corner 
of Ellis and Mason Streets, and their old headquarters (as shown in the above cut) at 2M Sutter 
Street will only be held in remembrance for the hallowed associations that have come and gone 
in the years of their trials, struggles and triumphs. Connected v,-lth this trysting-place at the 
left of the entrance, is the Pioneer Homoeopathic Pharmacy that was established in 1870, by 
Boerieke&Tafel, and succeeded by Boericke & Sehreck, manufacturers and importers of homoeo- 
pathic compounds. They arc the leading pharmacists in their line on the Pacific Coast, and 
keep in stock all medicines of this class for man, as well as a full line of veterinary medicines 
and specifics. Mr. Wm. A. Brooks, an experienced pharmacist, is the able manager, and the 
•public can place reliance and confidence in the stability and high professional character of this 
Homoeopathic Pharmacy.

Giving a succinct description of the aims and objects of 

Beneficiary and Fraternal Societies and a Brief 

Synopsis of the Leading Colleges and Pmvate 

Seminaries compiled from Official 

Records and Society 





Copyright, 1889, by the Bancroft Company 



/|\NE OF THE characteristic and marked features of this age is the large 
\i/ number of social, fraternal and co-operative organizations and societies. 
Within the last ten years they have increased in such proportions that the whole 
superstructure of our commonwealth, in its social, financial and moral relations, 
are moulded and fashioned by co-operative, fraternal and beneficiary Orders. 
The power of association among bad men for consummating nefarious schemes 
illustrates, in a marked degree, the beneficent results that come from these great 
benevolent Orders, where the toiling millions in the humble Avalks of life find a 
congenial society home, and the sympathy and protection of the strong arm of 
good men and the best elements in the community. 

These organizations are great moral forces in our commonwealth ; the hand- 
maid of religion, and so prominently associated with the welfare of our country 
that the fraternal press has become a necessity. Even the secular press and the 
great daily journals are ^'ying with each other in making and publishing a depart- 
ment especially devoted to fraternal society affairs, and of recording events of so 
much interest to the multitude in the higher and lower walks of life. The political 
economist and statesman recognize these fraternal and beneficiary associations as 
great factors in the development of a higher and progressive ci\dlization. They 
carry Avith them a force and power in the affairs of state that neutralizes the evils 
of concentrated wealth, controls legislation and is a bulwark against socialism and 

The future historian will give a prominent place in the history of our country 
to these humane Orders. And the men and women who have given their disin- 
terested labor in erecting these temples, around whose altars humanity is elevated 
and charity exemplified, will find their names placed high in the roll of honor as 
the world's benefactors. Society directories of several fraternal Orders have been 
published, from time to time, and a large proportion of our Subordinate Lodges 
in the cities publii-h a roster of their members, containing their address and occu- 
pation. We have undertaken the task of publishing an Illustrated Fraternal 
Directory, including Educational Institutions, for the Pacific Coast. Prominent 
citizens and leading men in these fraternal and beneficiary Orders have given us 
their hearty commendation and indorsement in writing. 

Our volume will contain valuable and reliable statistics; the distinctive 
features of each prominent fraternal or beneficiary Order, together with a roster 
of over 3,000 Subordinate Lodges, on the Pacific Coast. It will be valuable as a 
book of reference, and the fine cuts and illustrations, with sketches of men who 
have occupied distinguished positions socially, politically and fraternally, will add 
much to the popular and attractive literature of our country.

Shortly after the death of Leland Stanford, Junior, only son of Senator Stanford, it 
was announced that "A University for both sexes, with the colleges, schools, semina- 
ries of learning, mechanical institutes, museums, galleries of art, and all other things 
necessary and appropriate to a University of high degree," would be founded at Palo 
Alto, Santa Clara county. The mere announcement attracted but little notice at the 
time, and was regarded as an expression of only ordinary interest. In the mean time 
Governor Stanford and his estimable wife, Jane Lathrop Stanford, had joiued in 
granting realty of such immense value that it enlisted the attention of the civilised 
world. The plan and arrangement was so comprehensive, liberal and munificent, that 
our own people could hardly realize that the State of California was to have an eudow- 
ment of a university grander, widerand larger than any educational institution endowed 
by one person in the history of the world. We quote from a pamphlet giving the history 
and detail of this institute, published by the Bancroft Company: 

' ' The records of history may be searched in vain for a parallel to this gift of Sena- 
tor Stanford to the State of his adoption. The utter absence of ostentation, and the 
singleness of purpose which has characterized this bestowal of many millions, render 
the act unique in the records of public benefactions. Many wealthy persons have, in 
the evening of their days, " when the grasshopper became a burden,'' or by will after 
death, bestowed large portions of their wealth for the public benefit ; but in this case 
the donor is a man scarcely past the prime of life, in robust health and the full strength 
of unimpaired faculties, surrounded by everything which can make life pleasurable 
and with the prospect of many years of enjoyment yet before him; a man who, by 
almost superhuman energy, enterprise and sagacity has amassed a vast fortune, yet 
freely and voluntarily donates a large portion of his more than princely wealth to 
advance the cause of education and afford the sons and daughters of California ample 
opportunity for obtaining the highest and broadest culture. By this act Senator 
Stanford will not only immortalize the memory of his son, but will erect for himself a 
monument more enduring than brass or marble; for it will be enshrined in the hearts of 
succeeding generations for all time to come. The Senator's idea is to make this a train- 
ing school for the hand as well as the center of intellectual culture, and from the man- 
ual labor departments we anticipate the earliest and most practical benefits of this 
great enterprise." 

The climate and environments of Palo Alto are the most favored of any portion of 
our State, and already immense buildings are nearly completed, as shown in the cut, 
and this cosmopolitan, liberal and practical educational system will be in operation 
during the coming year. 

' ' Palo Alto is so near San Francisco and the University at Berkeley, that when the 
Southern Pacific Railroad is built along the bay shore, the run can be made from this 
city to Palo Alto in forty minutes without using any more power than is required at 
present, and the time will be eventually made much shorter. Low rates of fare will be 
given, for the purpose of encouraging attendance at the institution; and this will make 
Palo Alto a very desirable place of residence for people who have children to educate 
and who do business in this city. On the other hand it will afi"ord facilities for the 
children of people who reside here to attend the University and still live at home; and 
the same may be said of those persons who may desire to take the higher courses of 
study. With this incentive to settlement there, it will be but a short time ere Palo 
Alto will become in reality a suburb of San Francisco. 

" During their lives the University will be under the control of Senator and Mrs. 
Stanford, as they are named as Trustees, but the grant provides that they cannot sell 
or encumber the property in any way, and that it is devised forever. It was for this 
reason that Senator Stanford felt averse to going into the United States Senate, desir- 
ing to devote the remainder of his life exclusively to the institution he has founded, 
and to give it his care and the direction which he thinks it ought to have; but the Sen- 
atorship came to him in such a manner that he felt he was not free to decline. Now 
that he has dedicated himself and a large portion of his property to the use of the State, 
his methods as a Senator will never be misunderstood, and he ought to be able to do a 
great deal for the State, of which for nearly a third of a century he has been a part."

5f?<? Celapd Stafford Jr. iJpiu<?rsity 

was founded by the beneficence of Senator Lei and Stanford in memory of his only 
child, Leland Stanford, Jr.- It is located in tlie upper Santa Clara valley, thirty- 
five miles from San Francisco and fifteen miles from San Jose, near the line of 
the Coast Division of the S. P. R. R., the Broad Gauge Railway connecting the 
two cities named. 

The geniality of the climate of thislocalityis attested by the fact that this 
portion of the Santa Clara valley has long been noted as the home of many of San 
Francisco's millionaires and of others who have sought the mildest and most 
equable climate within easy reach of the Pacific Coast metropolis, and by the fact 
that here, as elsewhere in the Santa Clara valley, the olive, the vine and the 
orange and other tropical and semi-tropical fruits flourish. 

The Stanford University has been endowed by its beneficent founder with 
lands and moneys aggregating, it is estimated, the magnificent sum of twenty 
millions of dollars. Its curriculum will be varied and liberal, but, according to the 
announced ideas of its founder, its courses of study will be adapted to the prepara- 
tion of young men and women for the duties and responsibilities of modern 
American life. Its buildings of handsome California stones, now in course 
of construction, will, when completed, cover several acres, and its princely domain 
of seven thousand acres will constitute the handsomest university grounds in the 

It has lately been announced that, with the beginning of the school year of 
1889 the Stanford University will be formally opened to receive students. Children 
of both sexes and of all ages from the Kindergarten pupil to the University 
student, will be admitted. Such an Institution, located in such an attractive 
country, must rapidly become the center of a dense population, highly and 
generously intellectual. 

Naturally, desirable tracts of land in the vicinity of such an Institution have 
already begun to command the attention of the numerous homeseekers that from 
almost every country of the world already iiave their eyes turned toward the 
greatest Institution of Learning in the world, the Leland Stanford Jr. University. 
The tract of land nearest to the buildings of this Institution, and the only one 
within walking distance of its classrooms outside of the University Domain itself, 
which can never b3 alienated, is the PALO ALTO TOWNSITE. This town is 
surrounded on three sides by the grounds of the University. It is the only land 
in the vicinity that commands a view of the buildings of the University. It fronts 
the only public streets and highways leading to the classrooms of the University. 
It has been laid out with wide streets and avenues and is supplied with parks, all 
of which appropriately bear the names of diflerent colleges and universities of the 
world. Several hundred of its lots have already been solri, and its remaining 
properties are destined to command almost fabulous prices, by reason of its 
unsurpassed location in the very heart of the wide and beauteous University 

Illustrated "Souvenir of the Leland Stanford Jr. University," with maps and

Since the idea of establishing an institution of this kind for the benefit of mankind 
came directly and largely from our son and only child, Leland, and in the belief that 
had he been spared to advise us as to the disposition of our estate, he -would have 
desired the devotion of a largo portion thereof to this purpose, we will that for all time 
to come the institution hereby founded shall bear his name, and shall be known as 
" The Leland Stanford, Junior, University." 



The number of Trustees shall be twenty-four, and fifteen thereof shall constitute a 
quorum, but the assent of not less than a majority of the whole, to-wit, thirteen, shall 
be necessary for affirmative action in the execution of the trusts herein contained.

will, if followed, fit tho graduate for some useful pursuit, and to this end to cause tho 
pupils, as early as may be, to declare the particular calling, which in life they may

preceding year, and with a statement of tlie financial afi"air3 of the institution. 



Any Trustee named in this grant, or the successor to any Trustee, may for 
cause be removed by a proper court of equity jurisdiction, after notice to him, and upon 
the application of the grantors herein, or either of them, or upon the application of the 
Board of Trustees.

after shall be filled by the surviving or remaining Trustees, by ballot. 



The Trustees shall : 

1. Within two years from the date hereof, select and lay off on the Palo Alto 
farm a site, and adopt a general plan for the construction of the University buildings. 
Such buildings shall be plain and substantial in character, and extensive enough to

acter and attainments of its faculty. In this behalf, and to the end that the endow- 
ment may not be wasted or impaired by the premature construction of expensive 
buildings, the Trustees shall be the exclusive judges, free from all interference from 
any source whatever, of the time when buildings are needed, and of the time and 
manner of their construction, and of the time and manner of making additions thereto. 

2. Lay off on the Palo Alto farm one or more sites for buildings for the officers and

The Trustees shall have power and it shall be their duty : 

1. To establish and maintain, in connection with the University, such a number 
of free scholarships as the endowment of the institution, considering all its objects, will 
justify. Such scholarships must be given either to those who, by good conduct and 
study, have earned the right thereto, or to the deserving children of those who, dying 
without means in the service of the State, or in the cause of humanity, have a special 
claim upon the good-will of mankind. 

2. To fix the terms and conditions upon which the students generally may be 
admitted to all or any of the privileges of the University. 

3. To fix the terms and conditions upon which the studenns of the public and pri- 
vate schools and other deserving persons may attend the lectures of the University, or 
engage in original research thereat, and the terms and conditions upon which the agri- 
cultural farms, laboratories, museums, art galleries, mechanical institutes, conserva- 
tories and other institutions, part of the University, shall be open to deserving persons, 
without their becoming students thereof.

of lectures upon the science of government, and upon law, medicine, mechanics and the 
other arts and sciences, which shall be free to the post-graduates of the colleges of the

sities, and to all deserving persons to the full capacity of the lecture-rooms, under such 
rules and regulations as the Trustees may adopt.

and during the life of the survivor, in relation to all said property, and in relation to the 
erection, maintenance and management of the institution hereby founded, perform all

grant, and by their successors forever.

Gentlemen : In the trust deed providing for the endowment and organization of ths 
University, the nature, objects, and purposes of the endowment are very generally 
stated. We deem it appropriate, however, to enlarge somewhat upon what is 
therein set forth. 

The reasons that impelled us to select the Palo Alto estate as the location for the 
University, are its personal associations, which are most dear to us, the excellence of 
its climate, and its accessibility. 

ONCE YOU TRY 'EM, YOU'LL ALWAYS BUY 'EM. Old Judge Cigarettes, with Improved 
Mouthpieces in each package. 


The deed of trust conveys, and at once irrevocably vests in you, the title to all the 
real property described therein. 

The endowment of lands is made because they are, in themselves, of great value, 
and their proper management will insure to the University an income much greater than 
would be realized were their value to be invested in any reliable, interest-bearing 
security. Again, they can never be alienated, and will, therefore, be an unfailing 
support to the institution which they are designated to benelit. 

As a further assurance that the endowment will be ample to establish and maintain 
a University of the highest grade, we have, by last will and testament, devised to you 
and your successors adtlitional property. We have done this as a security against the 
uncertainties of life, and in the hope that during our lives the full endowment may gc 
to you. With this in view, we have provided in this grant that you may take such 
othv;r ijroperty as we may give to more fully carry out the objects of this trust. 

Tbe Palo Alto farm furnishes a sufficiently diversified soil, with a topography which 
admirably fits it as a place for agricultural education. In time, also, a handsome 
income will be derived from the rental of desirable residences to parents and others 
who will choose the place as a residence on account of its social, intellectual, and 
climatic advantages. Of course, the Trustees will see to it that no objectionable people 
are allowed to reside upon the estate, and that no drinking-saloons shall ever be 
opened vipon any part of the premises. 


It should be the aim of the institution to entertain and inculcate broad and general 
ideas of progress and of the capacity of mankind for advancement in civilization. 
It is clear that to insure the steady advancement of civilization great care must be 
exercised in the matter of the general development of the great 'body of the people. 
They need education in the fundamental principles of government, and we know of no 
text so plain and so suggestive as that clause in our Declaration of Independence 
which declares that "Among the inalienable rights of man are life, liberty, and the 
pursuit of happiness, and that to secure these rights governments are instituted among 
men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." 

A government founded on such principles commands for the support and protection 
of individual rights the force of the whole people. With these principles fully 
recognized, agrarianism and communism can have only an ephemeral existence. 

The merely physical wants of civilized man are not much greater than those of the 
savage, but his intellectual wants arc bounded only by his capacity to conceive. His 
wants, therefore, will always depend upon his advancement in civilization, and the 
demand for labor will be measured accordingly. The rapidity of the communication 
of modern thought and the facilities of transportation make the civilized world one 
great neighborhood, in whose markets all producers meet in competition. The relative 
compensation to the producer must depend upon his powers of production. 


When we consider the endless variety of the wants and the desires of civilized 
society, we must fully appreciate the value of labor-aiding machinery and the necessity 
for having this of the best character. Too much attention, therefore, cannot be given to 
technical and mechanical instruction to the end that from our institution may go out 
educators in every field of production. 

Out of these suggestions grows the consideration of the great advantages, especially 
to the laboring man, of co-operation, by which each individual has the benefit of the 
intellectual and physical forces of his associates. It is by the intelligent application of 
these principles that there will be found the greatest lever to elevate the mass of 
humanity, and laws should be formed to protect and develop co-operative associations. 
Laws with this object in view will furnish to the poor man complete protection against 
the monopoly of the rich, and such laws properly administered and availed of, will 
insure to the workers of the country the full fruits of their industry and enterprise. 
They will accomplish all that is sought to be secured by t!io labor-leagues, trade- 
unions, and other federations of workmen, and will be free fron the objection of even 
implicitly attempting to take the unauthorized or wrongful control of f^e property, 
cjpital or time of others. 

Hence it is that we have provided for thorough instruction in the principles of 
co-operation. We would have it early instilled into the student's mind that no 
crreater blow can be struck at labor than that which makes its products insecure.

While the articles of endowment prohibit sectarianism, they direct that there shall 
be taught that there is an all-wise, benevolent God and that the soul is immortal. It 
seems to us that the welfare of man on earth depends on the belief of immortality, and 
that the advantages of every good act and the disadvantages of every evil one, follow 
man from this life into the next, there attaching to him as certainly as individuality is 

As to the manner in which this shall be taught and whence the confirmations shall 
be derived, we are not prepared to advance any thought other than that they may be 
sought from every available source that tends to throw light upon the subject. 

While it is our desire that there shall shall be no sectarian teaching in this institu- 
t on, it is very far from our thoughts to exclude divine service. Wc have provided that 
a suitable building be erected wherein the professors of the various religious denomina- 
tions shall, from time to time, be invited to deliver discourses not sectarian in character. 

We deem it of the first importance that the education of both sexes shall be equally 
full and complete, varied only as nature dictates. The rights of one sex, political and 
otherwise, are the same as those of the other sex, and this equality of rights ought to be 
fully recognized. 

We have sought to place the free scholarships upon the basis of right to the student. 
We think this important, in order that his dignity and self-respect shall be maintained 
and that he may understand that in his political relations he is entitled to nothing he 
does not earn. 

With respect to the expenses of the students of the University, we desire that the 
Trustees shall fix them as low as possible. 

The articles of endowment are intended to be in the nature of a constitution for the 
government and guidance of the Board of Trustee;., in a general manner, not in detail. 
We hope that this institution will endure through long ages. Provisions regarding 
details of management, however wise they may be at present, might prove to be mis- 
chievous under conditions which may arise in the future. 

In the deed of trust we have designated the purposes of this University. The 
object is not alone to give the student a technical education, fitting him for a successful 
business life, but it is also to instill into his mind an appreciation of the blessings of this 
Government, a reverence for its institutions, and a love for God and humanity, to the 
end that he may go forth and by precept and example, spread the great truths by the 
liaht of which his fellow-man will be elevated and taught how to attain happiness in 
this world and in the life eternal. 

We do not expect to establish a University and fill it with students at once. It 
must be the growth of time and experience. Our idea is that in the first instance we 
shall require the establishment of colleges for both sexes; then of primary schools, as 
they may be needed, and out of all these will grow the great central institution for more 
advanced study. 

'We have fixed the number of Trustees at twenty-four, that the institution may 
have the strength which comes from numbers. There is little danger of divided coun- 
sels, for the Educational Department will be under the control of the President of the 
University, who will have and exercise all the power necessary to make him responsible 
for its successful management. In order that he may have the assistance of a compe- 
tent staff of professors, we have provided that the best talent obtainable shall be pro- 
cured and that liberal compensation shall always be offered. 

We are impressed with the deep responsibilities of this undertaking and invoke at all 
times your aid and the Divine help and blessing. During our lives we hope we shall be 
compelled to make little draft upon the time of yon, gentlemen, members of the Board 
of Trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University, yet we trust that you will be ever 
ready to assist us with your counsel.

world as one of the witnesses 
of a transformation of a crude 
pastoral life to the highest 
conception of an educational 
institution that will live in the 
ages to come, and will be known 
as the lonely "Redwood Tree" 
standing near the Leland Stan- 
ford Junior University. 





The cession of California to the United States and her admission into the Union 
marked an epoch in the history of our country that afforded opportunities for men of 
brawn and brain to achieve greatness and become the world's heros. Leland Stanford, 
a pioneer with keen insight, saw the dormant and gigantic resources of this undeveloped 
country. With an abiding faith, that was as fixed as the crusader on his pilgrimage to 
the Holy Land, he set to work with heart and hand to uncover and develop this new 
empire. The opportunity offered was a great one and among the many broad-brained, 
enterprising and pushing men, the subject of our sketch outstripped them all in the 
race, and is and should be accorded the first place in the roll of honor as the most dis- 
tinguished son of our State. He is a native of Albany county. New York, and was born 
on the ninth day of March, 1824. Like most of our distinguished men, he worked his 
way up from the farm and country school-house by hard study, and through grim pri- 
vation. He commenced the study of law in 1845, was admitted to the bar, and settled 
in Port Washington, Wisconsin, in 1848. Two years afterwards he married Miss Jane 
Lathrop, daughter of Dyer Lathrop, a leading and honored familj* of the city of Albany. 
He was miner, merchant, magistrate, at Michigan Bliiff, California, for four years, and 
joined a large mercantile house in Sacramento in 1856. At an early date he took an 
active part in politics, and was chosen a delegate to the Chicago Convention that nomi- 
nated Abraham Lincoln in 1860. In 1861 he was elected Governor of California by a 
plurality of 23,000 votes. His administration was one of the best, and his State papers, 
tact and executive ability was felt and acknowledged by all to be that of a liberal 
minded and sagacious statesman. He had accepted the office of Governor at the 
earnest solicitation of his party, and declined a renomination, as his time and abilities 
were required in completing the great transcontinental railwajs and feeling the crisis 
in the affairs of State had passed. In 1884 he was elected a United States Sena- 
tor, a position he has filled with honor, and the universal commendation of his 
constituents. The crowning act of his whole life, and in which his estimable wife, Mrs. 
Jane Lathrop Stanford, joined him, was the endowment of the Leland Stanford, 
Junior, University, in memory of their only son, who died in the prime of early 
manhood in Italy. In the arrangement, comprehensiveness and practicability of this 
gigantic educational institution, the master mind and great philanthropic heart is shown; 
and the name of Leland Stanford and his wife and lamsnted mm. will be handed down 
from generation to generation as incense for a grateful people.

An almost continual service, commencing with Alcalde in Marysville in 1849 ; legis- 
lator, code commissioner, Justice and Cliief Justice of the Supreme Court of California, 
and for a quarter of a century Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, 
has given Stephen J. Field the honor of having done more to mould, formulate and estab- 
lish our code of law and jurisprudence than any other one of our distinguished pioneers. 
He is a native of Connecticut ; a son of a noted minister, and one of the members of a 
family of Fields whose achievements and intellectual greatness have given them a national 
reputation as men pre-eminently in the front rank in their respective professions. At 
the age of thirteen years. Justice Field was sent to Greece and Rome, to more 
thoroughly acquire the Latin and Greek languages and study the classics. His exten- 
sive ami practical education enabled him to grasp and cope with the new order of sur- 
roundings incident to the settlement of a new country, where the worst elements of 
the world in the mad excitement of gold and silver mining undertook to establish mob 
rule and clannish aggrandizement. It required keen intellect, sagacious statesmanship and 
courage to invent and enact a system of law to govern and control the cosmopolitan and 
depravetl men who gathered from the ends of the earth to dig for gold in our gulches, 
vavines and mountains. His work as a legislator, while a young man, in aidi)ig in 
l)assing a law that gave to each individual a right and protection under enacted district 
iind neighborhood laws will remain unto all time in the light of experience a more 
lionored service as a public servant than all his appreciated labors as an expounder 
of Constitutional and territorial law. His early education in foreign lands and subse- 
quent experience as an Argonaut, has made him a typical Calif ornian in whom we have 
the highest admiration and pride. He iiasbeen x^rominently before the people as a can- 
didate for President. His judicial work forms a goodly portion of the judicial history 
of our State, and his pointed and well-written decisions will be quoted with approba- 
tion in all the years that shall come under our system of government. It seems quite 
appropriate that he should have been selected as one of the trustees of the Leland 
Stanford, Junior, University. 


The life of Charles Goodall, the eminent Methodist layman of the Pacific Coast, 
illustrates the success that may be attained by well-directed effort in accumulating 
wealth, and gaining honor by one who was a poor sailor boy in a foreign land, without 
capital or influential friends. Captain Goodall left his native home in England at the 
age of IG years, arriving in New York in 1841. He commenced labor on a farm, but 
.soon changed his mind and embarked at New Bedford for a three years' cruise on a 
whaling voyage. This trip was a school to him. That he improved to his best advau- 
tace, ai>d laid the foundation for that practical and finished education that has been so 
useful to him in the responsible positions he has occupied as a public speaker and 
prominent citizen, in large business enterprises, in developing the State. He came to 
California in 1850, and found by experience that he was a better sailor than miner; and 
consequently took ship for the islands of the sea. While on this voyage Christopher 
Nelson was rescued from the Fiji islands, where he had been shipwrecked. He after- 
ward became one of the firm of Goodall & Nelson, who laid the foundation of the 
Pacific Coast Steamship Co., that has become the largest coast line of steamers on this 
coast, and one of the best conducted shipping houses in the United States. The firm 
is now Goodall, Perkins & Co.; ex-Governor Perkins and Edwin Goodall, a brother of 
Captain Goodall, constituting the present firm. In 1861, and in 1863, he was elected 
Harbor Master by the Peoples' Party, and in 1870 to the State Assembly. During a 
long term of years he has been engaged in the active duties of a business that extends 
from British Columbia to Mexico; yet he has found time to promote great projects to 
elevate snd bless his fellow-men. His high moral rectitude, strict integrity and benevo- 
lence are prominent traits in his life and character. The Methodist-Episcopal Church, 
of which he is a devoted member, has received at his hands liberal gifts, and to his 
sagacity and wise counsel in establishing this church in outlaying districts, the members 
feel that they owe the Methodist layman. Captain Goodall, a debt of gratitude. He 
will bring to his office as trustee of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University a ripe 
experience and devotion that springs from a great benevolent heart.

We have a just pride in the pioneers of our State who were prominent in laying 
the foundation of thij great commonwealth. Ex-Mayor Spauldiug of Oakland is a 
good representative of a Californian, and a fine type of American citizenship. He is a 
descendant from the good old Puritan stock of Massachusetts, and a native of Maine. 
At the age of thirteen he commenced learning the trade of carpenter and builder, hav- 
ing his father for inst.'uctor. He Ijecamo a master mechanic, and at the age of twenty- 
two years started for California, arriving in September, 1851. His varied experiencea 
in mining, wliipsawing lumber to turn the bed of tlic Mokelumnc river, and building 
sawmills, is but a chapter of his life, and tiirough many disasters and disappointments 
he did not become disheartened. In September, 1859, he opened a saw factory at Sac- 
ramento and invented and devised the adjustable saw-tooth, which has brought him 
lienor and notoriety as an inventor and revolutionized the circular saw business. Tlie 
Pacihc Saw Manufacturing Company and the N. W. Spaulding Saw Company are the 
largest on the Pacific Coast and among the leading saw manufactories of the United 
States. In 1863 he removed his family to Oakland, where he has since resided, sur- 
rounded by an interesting family, living in a luxurious home. He has taken a deep 
interest in municipal affairs of the city of Oaliland; serving as a Councilman four years 
and Mayor for two terms. Without solicitation on his part, President Garfield, in 1881, 
tendered him the important and responsible office of United States Treasurer at San 
Francisco. Tliis Mr. Spauldiug accepted, entering upon the discharge of his duties on 
the fifth day of May, 1881, and holding it until August 20, 1885. During that time 
lie received and disbursed, or safely kept and transferred to his successor, more than 
three hundred and twenty millions of dollars without the loss of one cent. In public 
or private life he has maintained a spotless reputation. His useful inventions and 
business tact have brought him fame, and the offices of trust and honor which he 
ha3 filled have come to him without solicitation. His Masonic record is almost con- 
tinued service in office since 1855. He i^ now Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge in 
Calif' -rnia. He wa3 W. M. of Mission, 169, for two years, and W. j\I. of Oakland, 188, 
F. and A.M., six years, and filled the office of High Priest in Alameda Chapter for 
three consecutive years, and Past Grand High Priest of the Royal Arch of Cali- 
fornia. He is a member of Oakland Commandery and also of Scottish Pvite, 33 
degree. He is an active memljer of the Masonic Veteran Association, and for 
many years was a member of the Masonic Board of Relief. In tlie Independent 
Order of Odd Fellows he holds a membership, and aho in tlie Encampment. He is 
noted for his geuei'osity, patience, constancy and fidelity; is a true friend, forbearing 
and forgiving; fashions, conquers and leads by the Golden Rule. As an inventor 
and mechanic, who toils daily in his studio and factory, it was a just tribute to 
appoint him a trustee of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University. 


There are in every community men of bright intellect and well-balanced minds 
who quietly pursue a line of duty, usefulness and efficient service to the common, 
wealth. Such has been the life of Judge Belcher. He was born in Vermont and his 
early training liy his father, an humble farmer, to habits of industry and self-reliance 
laid the foundation of his future career. In 1S42 he entered the University of Ver- 
mont in Burlington, graduating in 1846. He chose for his profession the law and was 
admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Vermont in 1852. In 1853 he came to 
California and after a "spell" at mining settled in Marysville, where he practiced law 
with eminent success. In 1855 ho was elected District Attorney of Yuba county and 
Judge of the Tenth Jiidicial District in 1863, which office he held for six years. In 
1872 he was appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of Califoi-nia and in 1881 he 
was elected a Trustee of the State Library. He was a member of the late Constitu- 
tional Convention and did signal service in shaping legislation and harmonizing the 
discordant elements of that body. In 1885 he was appointed Supreme Court Commis- 
sioner, whicli responsil)le position he now holds. He is highly esteemed, and has main- 
tained a spotless character. Judge Belcher is a man of remarkable strengtli of mind 
and soundness of judgment, and his fellow-trustees will find in him a valuable coadjutor 
in administering the noble trust confided to their keeping.

HON. JAMES McMillan shafter 



The life of Henry Vrooman is one of the most remarkable instances of advance- 
ment from the humble walks of life to the highest pinnacle of fame. The history of 
his career seems more like romance than reality. He achieved greatness; it did not 
come by chance. He was born in Michigan in 1S44, and accompanied his parents on 
their journey across the continent, arriving in Portland, Oregon, in 1852. At eight 
years of age he was put to work on a farm, and drifted from one occupation to another 
until at the age of twelve years he was driving a logging team in one of the lumber 
camps of Northern California, and at the age of thirteen year3 he owned a team of 
oxen, which he used a 5 a contractor until the year IS'iS. From this time vuitil 1861 
he was miner, woodchopper, butcher, milkman and contractor. In the fall of 1861 he 
commenced to learn the blacksmith's trade and divide his spare time to study. His 
great breadth of mind and keen intellect enabled him to grasp, without seeming effort, 
abstruse questions, and he was full of enthusiam to gain knowledge. In 1867 he 
attended the Pacific Business College and received a diploma. He hammered iron and 
steel to procure money that he might gratify his ambition of a collegiate course. He went 
to Cornell University, at Ithaca, but was compelled to i-eturn to California on account of 
failing health. In 1873 lie was appointed Engineer of Phcenix Fire Engine Company, 
No. 1, of Oakland, wrote for the Oakland Home Jo«rna^ and commenced to read law. 
Within one year he was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of California, and to 
tlie Supreme Court of the United States in 1881. Mr. Vrooman wis appointed Deputy 
District Attorney and Deputy City Attorney of Oakland, and was elected City Attor- 
ney of Oakland and District Attorney of Alameda county. In 1882 he was elected to 
tlie State Senate, and was given the complimentaiy vote for Senator of tlie United States 
by the Republican party in 18S5. In January, 1873, he was married to Miss Emily 
Jordon, a sister of Hon. Wm. II. Jordon, Past Supreme Master Workman of the 
Ancient Order of United Workmen. He commenced life under adverse circumstances, 
supported a mother, accumulated wealth, and a short time before his death, wliich 
occurred in April, 1889, accepted a fee of $525,000 as the leading coimsel in an impor- 
tant and warmly contested suit. 

Such, in brief, ij a meager sketch of the clieckered life of a remarkable man; farm- 
hand, butcher, woodchopper, blacksmith, fireman, student. City Attorney, District 
Attorney and State Senator, in all tliese varied and incougruous occupations he lias won 
the respect of all witli whom he has been connected. Sprung from the lowliest walks 
of life, he has, by his own unaided efforts, risen to rank with the higliest of his con- 
temporaries. A devoted son, an affectionate husband, a kind and indulgent father; a 
man gifted with extraordinary powers of mind and will; of unwavering fidelity and 
integrity, his course may well excite the admii'ation and respect of a community which 
has reason to be proud of liaving fostered such a man. 


Tlie name of Stanford will be commemorated as one most dear to Californians. 
Josiah Stanford is a brother of Senator Stanford, and the eldest of the family. He is 
a fine type of an American gentleman of the old school, and has been prominently con- 
nected with tlie development of our State, and as a pioneer was instrumental in induc- 
ing Governor Stanford to come to this State. Althougli Mr. Josiali Stanford has not 
been connected with railroad building in this State, lie did assist his father, Mr. Josiah 
Stanford, Senior, in his contracts for building railroads in New York State, among 
which was the railroad from Alljany to Schenectady. Mr. Stanford arrived in Califor- 
nia in 1849, and commenced mercliandising at Mormon Island. Subsequently he 
opened a large hardware house in Sacramento, and subsequently a large oil store in 
San Francisco, which is still carried on by one of his sons. We reproduce from an 
interesting sketch jirinted in 1886 in The Resources of California: 

"Mr. Stanford is a man of powerful frame and naturally strong constitution. His 
threescore and ten years sit lightly upon him, and a stranger would scarcely suppose 
him to be more than sixty years of age. His step is firm and his form erect; his eye, 
bright, clear and sparkling, lias occasionally a merry twinkle which bespeaks the 
kindly, genial soul within. Mr. Stanford is a member of the Society of California 
Pioneers, and evidently takes pride in the fact that he was one of those who laid the 
foundation of this great and growing State, and that through his influence is probably 
due the presence and citizenship in California of the founder of the Leland Stanford, 
Junior, University."

The five men, Messrs. Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, C. P. Huntington, Mark 
Hopkins and E. B. Crocker, ■who undertook and did consummate one of the greatest 
enterprises of modern times, by building a railroad across the Sierra Nevada mountains 
and binding with iron bands the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, will be remembered in 
history as the remarkable men of their age. To climb the steep and rugged ascent of 
that mountain range seemed a physical impossibility. They sought for the best engi- 
neers, as upon them in a large measure depended the ultimate success of this stupendous 
undertaking. For twenty j^ear.i the locomotive has been crossing and recrossing these 
mountains, on the route marked by the civil engineers. Mr. Gray occupied a promi- 
nent position in this department, and the light of experience and the lapse of time has 
proved that he laid his plans well. We quote from a short sketch from a contempo- 

"George Edward Gray was born in the town of Verona, Oneida county, New 
York, on the twelfth day of September, 1818, and received his early education in the 
public schools of his native village. At an early age he manifested a )n-edilection for 
civil engineering, and after completing his preliminary studie.3 he was placed under the 
tuition of Peletiah Rawson, M. A., one of the most noted civil engineers of his time. 
Under his instruction young Gray made rapid progress in his profession, and upon 
attaining his majority was employed upon the Black River and Erie Canals, in the 
State of New York, and also served on .several of the railroads then being constructed 
in that State. 

^'In 1853 the various railroad companies then operating between Albanj-, Troy, 
Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Suspension Bridge and Lewiston wci-e consolidated v,-ith the 
New York Central Railroad, and Mr. Gray was appointed Chief Engineer. This 
important position he held until 1865, when he resigned and was appointed Consulting 
Engineer of the Southern Pacific Railroad of California. Here his acknowledged 
ability as an engineer found the fullest scope for its exercise, and he remained in that 
position until 1871, when he was appointed Chief Engineer of the Southern Pacific Rail- 
road of California, which position he resigned when that road was leased to the South- 
ern Pacific Company in 1885. Mr. Gray was also Chief Engineer of the Southern Pacific 
Railroad of Arizona, Southern Pacific of New Mexico, and directed the location and 
construction of the Galveston, Harrisburg & San Antonio Railroad, from El Paso to 
San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Gray is a life member of "The Institution of Civil Engi- 
neers," of London, England, and also a member of the "American Society of Civil 
Engineers," of New Y'ork. He is a life memljer of the California Academy of Sciences, 
and is President of the Board of Directors of that society. Mr. Gray has earned an 
honored place among the architects of California'.s growth and prosperity, and has seen 
the wilderness of the past blossom into the garden of the prosperous present. He well 
deserves the tribute of respect paid him by Senator Stanford, in appointing him one of 
the trustees of his noble benefaction."

The Argonauts of California who were prominent in the affairs of this Golden State 
will be remembered in history as among the heroes of the world. During a long and 
honorable career, commencing before the organization of our State Government, in offi- 
cial position and as a merchant, the name of Henry Lee Dodge is without taint, spot or 
blemish. He was born in Vermont in 1825, and traces his lineage from a noted and. 
distinguished ancestry. He graduated from the University of Vermont at Burlington, 
and taught school to help defray the expense of a collegiate course. In 1847 he com- 
menced reading law. The gold discoveries of California were the immediate cause of 
his laying aside the law books and embarking for the El Dorado, arriving in June, 1849. 
In August, 1849, ho wa3 appointed clerk of the i\lcalde's Court of San Francisco, and 
in December following ho was appointed clerk of the Ayuntamiento, or Town Coun- 
cil, both of which positions he held until California was admitted into the Union. ' He 
soon after established a wholesale provision and commission house, whicli with soma 
changes has been in existence, and is now one of the leading commission houses on the 
Pacific Coast. He served two terms as Supervisor, and resigned his office to take tL3 
position of State Senator. In 1877 he was appointed a member of the Treasury Com- 
mission, and in December of the same year he was appointed Superintendent of the 
Mint at San Francisco. He held this ofHce four and one-half years, and on his retire- 
ment received the following tribute: "The Superintendent of the Mint at San Fran- 
cisco has been and is distinguished alike for ability, fidelity and accuracy (having 
returned to the Treasury about $100,000 of the appropriation unexpended). This is- 
au example worthy of commendation and imitation. " In Januaiy, 1885, he was elected 
President of the Chamber of Commerce, and re-elected the following year. He is a life 
member of the Mercantile Library Association, and was elected President of the Cali- 
fornia Pioneers in 1879-80. An honored pioneer, respected citizen and leading mer- 
chant, it seems a very wise choice in selecting him as one of the Trustees of the Leland 
Stanford, Junior, University. 


For over thirty years Judge Spencer has been one of the leading citizens of Sa» 
Jose, and prominently identified in the growth and progress of the Santa Clara valley 
as a public officer. He arrived in this State from his native State, New York, in 1852, 
and settled in the Garden City. In 1858 he was admitted to practice law by the 
Supreme Court of this State, and at once took a position which he since maintained as- 
one of the leading lawyers in our State. In the fall of 1861 he was elected District 
Attorney of Santa Clara county, which office he filled two terms. In 1879 he was 
elected Judge of the Superior Court of Santa Clara county, which position ho has occu- 
pied continuously to the presenc time. He seived one term as an Assemblyman, and 
was chosen Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. His eminent talents and profound 
knowledge of the law enabled him to shape legislation relative to the codes. Scholastic 
attainments, great breadth of mind, purity of motive and action, his life has been one 
of signal service and benefit to this favored section of our State. It is unquestionably 
true that no man in Santa Clara county is held in higher esteem than Judge Spencer, 
and it seems quite appropriate that he should have the honor of being appointed one of 
the trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University.

Ex-Mayor Brown, of Sacramento, has great popularity and is held in high esteem 
among those who know him best. He is modest and unassuming, and his success may 
be attributed to his rectitude of character and honest purpose in his private life and 
official duties as a public servant; for as such he regards himself when invested with 
position and authority by the people. He was born in Kentucky and spent his boyhood 
days on his father's farm. His education was completed at Mount Marino Seminary 
and while a young man he emigrated to Missouri. The life of a farmer was not suited 
to his taste and he engaged as a clerk in merchandising for one year in Lexington, 
Missouri. He arrived in California in July, 1850, and took a hand in mining near 
Placerville for a short time. He commenced business in Sacramento in 1851, and has. 
made this city his home since that time. He has filled various official positions in Sac- 
ramento county, among which are Deputy County Clerk, Public Administrator, Mayor, 
and has always taken a deep interest in the welfare of the city. He is now President 
of the State Board of Trade and Gas Inspector for San Francisco. He has not sought 
public honors or official position only as a duty, and at the solicitation of those who appre- 
ciate him as a reliable and trustworthy citizen. His social standing, high sense of 
honor and large experience in educational affairs make him a fit representative of tho 
Leland Stanford, Junior, University. 


The heroism displayed by the pioneer physicians of California in attending the 
human wrecks incident to a new and untried mining life where large numbers of the 
adventurous and hardy sons of our country were prostrated by toil, exposure and 
disease, forms a bright page in the history of our State. In early days the city of Sac- 
ramento was the Mecca in which were gathered the destitute, disheartened and dis- 
eased miners. Among the many physicians who exhibited a nobility of character and 
self-sacrifice for sufi'ering humanity Dr. Harkness is deserving the highest commenda- 

He graduated from Pittsfield Medical College in 1849, and reached California in 
September of that year. In the autumn of 1850 he removed from Bidwell's Bar to 
Sacramento and resumed the practice of his profession. When the great scroll is 
unrolled the name of Dr. Harkness will appear in the brightest characters, for hig 
unselfish, gratuitous and unremitting devotion to the men and women who suffered and 
died during that terrible ordeal. The professional labors of Dr. Harkness in Sacra- 
mento have made his name a household word in that State, and there are men living 
to-day who cherish in their hearts the highest regard for his professional devotion, and 
skill as a physician. He was the first Superintendent of Public Schools at Sacramento, 
and has always taken a deep interest in educational matters. 

Since his retirement from practice he has traveled extensively in Europe and Africa 
as well as in his native land, forming among scientists close relations and lasting 
friendship. In 1877 he was elected a life member of the "British Association for the 
Advancement of Science," and also a member of the " Societe Mycologique de France," 
" Socita Crittogamolgica Italiana " and many other scientific societies. Dr. Harkness 
is Vice-President of the California Academy of Sciences and one of its most active 
members. His scientific labors have been chiefly directed to the study of Fungi, and as 
a notable representative of his profession it was but a just tribute to appoint him one 
of the trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University.

A short time since a message was received from Washington to the effect that 
the contract for building the steam propeller and war cruiser Charleston had been 
awarded to Irving M. Scott, of San Francisco. While this was welcome news to Cali- 
fornians, it had more than ordinary significance, from the fact that we had associated 
in our minds the draughtsman for our mining machinery, coasting steamers and 
mechanical devices since 1858, when Mr. Scott accepted that position in the extensive 
shops of the late Peter Donahue. He was born in Maryland, and is a descendant from 
an honored ancestry belonging to the Quakers or Society of Friends. He took an 
academic course at the Milton Academy, in Baltimore, and after completing his studies 
in June, 1854, he entered the manufactory of Obed Hussey, the celebrated inventor of 
the first American reaping-machine. He became an expert draughtsman, and followed 
his profession with signal success until 1863, when he was made Superintendent of the 
Union Iron W^orks, San Francisco. 

In 1865 Col. Donahue retired from active connection with the business, and Mr. 
Scott became a partner in the establishment under the firm name of H. J. Bootii & Co. ; 
the firm consisting of Henry J. Booth, George W. Prescott and Irving M. Scott. In 
1875, Mr. Booth retired from the firm and a new copartnership was organized under the 
title of Prescott, Scott & Co., consisting of George W. Prescott, Irving M. Scott and 
Henry T. Scott, youngest brother of Irving M. Soon after the organization of this firm 
they erected extensive works at the Protrero, where they are now doing the largest 
business in their line upon the Pacific Coast. So largely have they added to their 
facilities for construction, that they are now able to furnisli anything in their line 
from a fully armed steel frigate to an inch bolt. These magnificent works have been 
constructed under the immediate direction and supervision of Mr. Scott, who is con- 
ceded to be one of the ablest mechanical engineers on the Pacific Coast, and to his 
skill, foresight and j adicious management is, to a great extent, attributable the unri- 
valed success of this establishment. 

This great plant will l^e historic, as the new and powerful great armored coast 
defense vessel will be built at the Union Iron Works at a cost of $2,000,000. 

From a well-written sketch from a contemporary we make the following extract: 
" As a man of talent, education and refinement, of exceptional enterprise and 
public spirit, Mr. Scott occupies a prominent position among California's distinguished 
men. His name has often been mentioned in connection with the Governorship of 
the State, for which high position he is eminently fitted by nature and education, 
but the magnitude of bis business operations, which demand his entire time and atten- 
tion, forbids his acceptance of this or any other political position. He is emphatic- 
ally a mail of the people, a self-made man. Standing at the bottom of life's ladder 
he has by sheer force of intellect, perseverence, energy and determination, combined 
with strict purity and probity of life, raised himself to an enviable position in the 
ranks of society, and in the estimation of his fellow-citizens. Being still in the full 
vigor and prime of manhood his future is fraught with promise of far greater emi- 
nence and usefulness. His selection by Senator Stanford as one of the trustees of his 
great benefaction was a wise and prudent one, and when the records of the Leland 
Stanford, Junior, University are made up, among the names of those who have been 
least active in its interests will not be found that of Irving M. Scott.

This is a name in California familiar to the great Ijody of our people, asso- 
ciated as it is in public life and commercially as the head of the firm of Horace Davis 
& Co., one of the oldest in the State as manufacturers of flour. Mr. Davis may feel 
proud of his ancestry, which can be traced by the records back to 1630 in the old Com- 
monwealth of Massachusetts where he was born. His father, John Davis, was elected 
Governor of Massachusetts in 1840, and represented that State in the halls of Congress 
for a period of twenty-six years, ten in the House of Representatives and sixteen 
years in the United States Senate. Mr. Davis is a graduate of Harvard College and 
commenced the study of law vn. the Dane Law School. Failing health compelled him 
to abandon the law, and, with a view of regaining his health, he shipped as a sailor and 
gained a knowledge of navigation. He followed the sea around Cape Horn on his way 
to California, arriving in San Francisco in 1853. For a time he commanded one of the 
steamships of the Pacific JNIail Steamship Company, and in 1860 established the Golden 
Gate Flouring Mills, a manufacturing establishment that has been blessed by hardy 
yeomanry and the most fastidious for the excellent quality of flour made during all 
these years. In 1876 he was elected a member of the House of Representatives and 
triumphantly re-elected the second term against much factional opposition. 

In 1875 he was united in marriage with ISIiss Edith S. King, daughter of the 
lamented Thomas Starr King. He has led an active, useful life, and helped to admin- 
ister and promote many humane and important institutions in this State. He was an 
active member of the Sanitary Commission during the late war and did efficient service 
for the Union. In 1864 he was President of the Mercantile Library Association; from 
1866 to 1876, ten years, he was President of the Produce Exchange; in 1883-84 he was 
President of the Chamber of Commerce and he is now President of the Savings and 
Loan Society, one of the oldest and most reliable banking institutions in San Francisco. 
An active career of one-third of a century in California has brought no diminution of 
his physical or mental energies; his uniformly courteous and genial temperament seem 
to have smoothed the furrows with which the plow of time usually marks the brow 
when the half-century of life is passed. " He has accepted the position of President of 
the State University at Berkeley. The Trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, Uni- 
versity will find in him a valuable coadjutor. 


Senator Stewart, from the State of Nevada, is one of the great " Commoners " of 
our country. He is a native of New York, and his youth was spent on a farm assisting 
his father until he was thirteen years of age, when he was allowed to start in the world 
for himself. Working on a farm for wages and teaching school enabled him to prepare 
for and enter Yale College. In the winter of 1849-50 he left for California before 
graduating, although the degree of Master of Arts was conferred on him by the college 
years afterward. He worked in the mines a short time and then commenced reading 
law. In December, 1852, he was appointed District Attorney of Nevada county, and 
in 1854 Attorney-General and removed to San Francisco. He returned to Nevada City, 
and thence removed to Downieville, and made particular study of laws relative to min- 
ing and water rights. In 1860 he took up his residence at Washoe, Nevada, and 
entered into active practice of his profession and became one of the leading attorneys of 
the State. He was elected in 1864 to the Senate of the United States, and was 
re-elected in 1869. He was the champion of the mining interest and thus to his efforts 
the miners are indebted for the defeat of the measure, introduced in Congress in 1866, 
to sell all the mining lands of the country at public auction. During the years between 
1875 and 1887, when he was elected again to the United States Senate, he practiced 
law, and was engaged in most of the important mining cases in Nevada and California. 
He is one of the most eloquent and engaging speakers in the United States Senate, and 
his forensic efforts on several occasions, in upholding the rights of the people, have 
been among the grandest in the history of our country. His sympathetic heart and 
eminent ability has always been enlisted in behalf of people in the humbler walks of 
life, and it seems quite appropriate that the miner's friend should have the honor of 
being selected one of the trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University.

The late lamented United States Senator Cxeneral John F. Miller was one of 
nature's noblemen. He was a patriot, skilled soldier, sagacious statesman and the peo- 
ple's champion. There is no name in history shines out with brighter lustre; the ideal 
American gentleman. He was born in Indiana, received a liberal education and gradu- 
ated at the New York Law School in 1852. The following tribute to his useful career 
we quote : "Resigning his seat as a Senator in the Indiana Legislature, Mr. Miller was 
commissioned a Colonel of the 29th Indiana Infantry, by the late 0. P. Morton, the 
great War Governor. With this regiment he took the field even before it had been 
properly equipped for active service, and quickly won a reputation as a brave and 
skillful soldier, loved and esteemed by commanders and men alike. He was soon 
placed in command of a brigade, and for some months before the battle of Murfreesbor- 
ough, or Stone's River, he commanded the post at Nashville. When General Rosecrans 
reorganized the Army of the Cumberland, in the fall of 1862, Colonel Miller wa» 
assigned to duty as Commander of the 7th Brigade, Negley's Division, Center, General 
George H. Thomas' Corps. " In the light of history General Miller won the battle of 
Murfreesborough. Six months later, while leading his Ijrigade in a charge upon th& 
intrenchments of the Confederates at Liberty Gap, General Miller was struck from hi* 
horse by a minie-ball which lodged in the bones forming the socket of his left eye and 
was almost utterly incapacitated for further field service. It is the frequently 
expressed opinion of some of our best soldiers that that minie-ball cut short the career of 
the most promising volunteer officer in the Union Army. From that time till the close 
of the war he was in command at Nashville, Mobile and other important points, 
except during the glorious battle of Nashville, when he commanded the left wing of 
Thomas' Army, comprising 8,800 men. He was given the rank of Brigadier and 
Brevet Major-General for "Conspicuous Bravery." He was elected Presidential Elector 
in 1872 and again in 1876 and was elected to the United States Senate in January, 
1881, taking his seat March 4th of the same year. His career in the Senate has been 
marked with the success that always has attended all his undertakings, public or private. 
He was always an ardent student and few branches of study, popular or recondite, were 
altogether passed over by him. His style was characterized chiefly by vigor and elegance. 
He could be thorough without pedantry and energetic without losing the polished smooth- 
ness of the litterateur. These considerations justified the wisdom of his choice as one of 
the trustees of the great Leland Stanford, Jr., University. Naturally of a literary- 
turn of mind, he built upon the foundation afforded by a thorough academical train- 
ing, by wide reading, extensive travel and profound observation, a judgment that 
might have been relied upon to advise in the spirit of the broadest catholicity in all' 
matters that may come before the body of which he was a member. As soldier, states- 
man and publicist, his views were always liberal, far-sighted and accurate. He waa 
chivalrous and brave, true and kind, sincere and attached to his friends. He leaves an 
estimable wife and lovely daughter, and the hearts of the American people are filled 
with sincere sympathy for them in their deep affliction.

Circumstances, official service and the wonderful development of the Pacific Coast 
have brought out the latent powers of men and developed the liighest character. Judge 
Deady camo to Oregou in 1840, a young man just admitted to practice law. We quote 
from a short sketch by Mr. Alfred Holman, and published in 1SS6: 

"From his entrance into Oregon Judge Deady has been continuously in public 
life. He served in the Legislature from 1850 to 1853, the last two years as President of 
the Upper House. In 1853 he was appointed an Associate Justice of the Supreme 
Court, which position he retained till the admission of the State into the Union in 1859. 
He chose the Southern District, and organized the courts in the various southern coun- 
ties of the State. During his residence there he lived on a farm near the banks of the 
beautiful Umpqua river, where still may be seen the fruitful orchards and viaes planted 
and trained by his own hands during the intervals of judicial labor. 

His rank as a lawyer, legislator and judge, during these years, made his selection 
as President of the Constitutional Convention, in 1859, an eminently fit one. To the 
work of making the Constitution, he gave a great deal of labor, drafting many of the 
provisions of that instrument himself. Later he was invited by the Legislature to pre- 
pare the Codes of civil and criminal law of the State, which he did to the entire satis- 
faction of the public. Since that time he has been consul ted in the preparation of nearly 
every important law that has been added to the statute book. Judge Deady was 
appointed Judge of the United States Court when Oregon became a State, and contin- 
uously since that time he has been the highest representative of national authority 
among us; and, in all respects, that give character and quality to society, our first 
citizen. To my mind there can be in the natural course of life no greater career, no 
higher dignity. 

" While Judge Deady is pre-eminently a jurist, his fame rests upon a much wider 
basis tlian Constitutions and Codes. His judicial opinions, which are given always the 
widest circulation in Oregon, deal fully witli the facts and the law, but they rarely 
close without going into the philosophies and moralities of the case under considera- 
tion, and to these aspects are brought profound learning, wise judgment and the graces 
of rhetoric. His opinions abound in gems of literature, and are the subject of constant 
citation and quotation among the people of Oregon. They are the basis of a great deal 
quite apart from the law, and their social and moral effects form no small part of their 
author's intluence upon the people of Oregon. Independent of his legal writings. Judge 
Deady has done a great deal of general literary work. His contributions to the periodi- 
cals of the day, and his public lectures and addresses (models in their way) have been 
approved by the best judgment at home and abroad. His writings illustrate a varied 
and extensive learning, a wise and considerate mind, and an elegant taste and discrimi- 
nation in literature. 

" There is not an agency of culture in the State which has not received some benefit 
from Judge Deady's direct eflbrts or counsels. As President of the Board of Regents of 
the State University of Oregon, he is the leading spirit of that institution, and gives 
much time and labor to advance its interests. The excellent Portland Library is a child 
of his creation and continuing care, and through it he has had much to do in developing 
the literary taste of this community. 

" All these labors, continued through many years, have given Judge Deady a position 
m society corresponding with his pre-eminent rank as a legislator and a jurist. His 
selection by Senator Stanford as a Regent of the proposed Leland Stanford, Junior, 
University was a happy choice. Of all the citizens of Oregon he is most fit for the

As a jurist Lorenzo Sawyer has for over thirty years occupied a prominent place. 
Like most of our truly great men, he went forth into the world with energy, determin- 
ation and tenacity to accomplish a purpose. He was born in New York, the son of one 
of our honored pioneer farmers, and helped clear the forest in summer and attended 
school in the winter until the age of seventeen, when he commenced hia career by teach- 
ing school to pay his expenses while studying 1 iw. He took a preparatory course at 
Central College, in Ohio, and was admitted to the bar in 1846. In the march of west- 
ern emigration, he went to Chicago, Jefferson, Wisconsin, and arrived in California in 
1850. In 1854 he was elected City Attorney of San Francisco, and served with marked 
ability and success. In 1862 Governor Stanford tendered hmi the appointment of City 
And County Attorney of San Francisco, which he declined. Soon after, he accepted an 
appointment for the Twelfth Judicial District, embracing the counties of San Francisco 
and San Mateo. At the next election he was unanimously elected to the same posi» 
tion. In 1863 he was elected oae of the Supreme Judges of rialifornia, and drew the 
six years' term, two of which he served as Chief Justice. In December, 1869, Presi- 
dent Grant nominated him to the position of Circuit Judge for the Ninth Circuit, which 
was confirmed by the Senate. His decisions and career as a judicial oificer have been 
such that he enjoys universal esteem as a man of profound learning and highest integ- 
rity. During tlie last five years new and intricate questions incident to the Pacific 
Coast, among which are the anti-Chinese legislation and debris from hydraulic mining, 
have been passed upon by Judge Sawyer, and his interpretation of the law sustained by 
the Supreme Court of the United States. The title of LL. D. was conferred on him 
by Hamilton College in 1877. The honor of being selected as a trustee of Leland Stan- 
ford, Junior, University was a just tribute to his ability, moral worth and great legal 


It is generally conceded that Judge McFarland is one of the ablest jurists on the 
Pacific Coast. He is a native of Pennsylvania and graduated in the class of 1846 from 
Mercersburg College, Pennsylvania. He chose for his profession the law and was 
admitted to the bar in 1849 by tiiat distinguished jurist the late Jeremiah S. Black. He 
arrived in California in 1850 and, like most of the stalwart men at that time, tried his 
hand at mining. In 1861 he was elected District Judge of the Fourteenth District, 
which was then composed of the county of Nevada. In 188.3 he was re-elected District 
Judge for the counties of Nevada and Placer. In 1884 he was appointed Registrar of 
the U. S. Land Office at Sacramento. He was reappointed, but resigned, and was after- 
ward elected a member of the California State Constitutional Convention, which met in 
the fall of 1878. In 1882 he was appointed Superior Judge for Sacramento county upon 
the urgent request of Governor Perkins. In 1884 he was elected to the same position and 
in 1888, a Justice of the Supreme Court of California, which office he now fills with much 
credit. JusticeMcFarlandisaman with great breadth of mind and bright intellect. His 
decisions during his incumbency as Superior Judge have seldom been reversed, and his 
dictum as a Justice of the Supreme Court commands the highest respect of the bench 
and bar. He is a man of deep convictions and on all national questions frank in 
expressing his views. Although he has taken an active part in politics, he is in no sense 
a trimmer to public opinion, and has shown on several occasions the highest type of 
manhood in defending and upholding a policy and principles that he deemed to be for 
the best interests of our commonwealth.

The high and responsible position of Mr. Hopkins as Treasurer of the Southern 
Pacific Railroad is a striking contrast with his start in life at his humble home in 
Maine where he was born. His father died whilst he was a mere child, but his uncle, 
the late Mark Hopkins, became his foster father and adopted him as his own son. At 
the age of fifteen years he was sent to Urban Academy, San Francisco, preparatory to 
a college course. His liealth failing, he took up a residence in Lake county, where he 
occupied his time as a Nimrod until his health was fully restored. As Mark Hopkins 
was the financial manager of the Central Pacific Railroad and the umpire among his 
associates in all great undertakings, it seems a happy circumstance that his mantle 
should fall on his adopted son, and that he should represent his illustrious father by adop- 
tion so worthily. He commenced at the beginning to learn the art of railroading. On 
the 1st day of January, 1883, he was appointed Treasurer of the Central Pacific Rail- 
road and of the various companies connected therewith, and upon organization of 
the Southern Pacific Company assumed the same office, which he now holds. 
He was united in marriage to Miss M. K. Crittenden, a niece of Mrs. 
Mark Hopkins, a lady who has endeared herself to Californians by her gen- 
erous benefactions to the poor. We quote from an interesting sketch from Resources oj 
California: "In manner Mr. Hopkins is most genial and afiiable, showing an utter 
absence of that hauteur and formality often affected by those who have been called to fill 
high positions of trust and honor. In business matters he goes straight to the point, 
using no unecessary words, and by the kindness of his demeanor placing a visitor at 
once at ease. Although the youngest, we predict that lie will not be the least useful of 
the trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University." 


Early in 1850 the subject of our sketch was cashier and bookkeeper of the whole- 
sale house of Packer, Dodge & Co., liostoti, Mass. Although but 23 years of age he 
was selected to represent this house and dispose of two cargoes of goods that had been 
shipped from Boston for San Francisco. He arrived in California on the 21st day of 
July, 1850, disposed of his two cargoes of goods and not only gave perfect satisfaction 
to his employers, but enjoyed their unlimited confidence in all business affairs. The 
tact, sagacity and promptitude shown on this occasion laid the foundation of one of the 
leading commercial houses on the Pacific Coast, as also the largest manufactory of cord- 
age and rope. The house of Tubbs & Co. has continued in business over thirty years 
without change of proprietors; and the great plant at the Potrero is capable of manu- 
facturing anything in the cordage line, and during the lousiest season employs over 1,200 
men. The Granite State, his birthplace, has reared some ideal representatives of men. 
Their services have been sought in our national councils, and their mercantile and 
manufacturing enterprises are carried to all portions of the world. The rough rugged 
hills of old New Hampshire and the land of mountain and streams, that has given 
facilities for manufactories, has made and moulded the character of her citizenship. 
Mr. Tubbs is an honorable representative of our enterprising merchant and has not 
taken any part in political affairs. In 1885, however, he was elected to the State Sen- 
ate and served the full term of four years. He was made chairman of the Finance 
Committee, a position just suited to his experience as a director of great enterprises.

JAMES McMillan shafter. 

There are men of high moral courage and great intellectuality who are the leaders 
in the great reforms in all countries. Such has been the life of Mr. Shafter. He was 
born in Vermont, and was educated at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, in which 
he graduated in 1837. He also attended the law school of Yale College, and was 
admitted to the bar in 1840. He commenced to practice law in Vermont, but was soon 
elected a member of the lower branch of the Legislature, and from 1843 to 1849 he was 
Secretary of State. In the sweeping tide of emigration to the great West in the latter 
part of the year 1849 he embarked for Sheboygan, Wisconsin. While a young man he 
was a strong anti-slavery man, and this has been the continued battle of his whole life. 
Although he has been an active politician, he has never been a political trimmer, nor 
never known to sacrifice principle for the sake of official position. In 1851 he was 
elected to the Legislature of Wisconsin, and made Speaker of the Assembly. At the 
next election he ran for Congress from that State, l)ut was defeated, although he ran 
one thousand votes ahead of his ticket. The nomination for District Judge and Member 
of Congress was ofifered him, both of which he declined, as he intended to move on west- 
ward. On his arrival in San Francisco he immediately entered into active practice, 
and for a number of years with his brother, 0. L. Shafter, who was at one time one of 
the Justices of the Supreme Court of California, were leading attorneys of the Pacific 
coast. Mr. Shafter served two terms as Senator in the California Legislature, and waa 
a member of the convention to frame our new Constitution. 

He is the owner of large estates, and has taken a good deal of interest in fine stock. 
and served two years as President of the State Board of Agriculture. Mr. Shafter 1.1 
a tine type of physical manhood, and his mental faculties are of the highest order. He 
is a good representative of the good old New England stock of men who have had such 
a prominent place in the history of our country. 


The cosmopolitan character and wide range of subjects to be taught in the Leland 
Stanford, Jr., University was an inducement to the master mind who founded it to 
select for trustees those who by education or experience had become expert in some 
branch of industry. The subject of our sketch has had large experience in mining, and 
whose scientific education would be of much value in the direction of a mining bureau. 
He is a native of Massachusetts, and entered Lawrence Scientific School at Cambridge, 
Massachusetts, at 18 years of age. After studying two years at this institute he went 
to Paris, where he studied the profession of mining engineer at the Ecole des Mines, until 
he became expert in the profession. From that time until 18G0 he was employed in the 
examination of various mining properties in the Lake Superior region, and in explora- 
tion on the island of New Foundland. In 1860 he came to California as one of the chief 
assistants in the State geological survey, under Prof. J. D. Whitney. In 1864 Governor 
Low appointed Mr. Ashburner one of the commissioners to take charge of and manatee, 
in the interest of the State, the Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Big Trees, which 
office he filled xxntil 1880. For a period of twenty years he has besn engaged in his 
profession as a mining engineer, and traveled in North and South America, Mexico and 
Asia. In 1874 he was appointed Professor of Mining in the University of California, 
and in 1876 he was appointed by the Regents Honorary Professor of Mining. He is 
also one of the trustees of the California School of Mechanical Arts, founded hy the 
late James Lick, and was appointed by Governor Perkins one of the Regents of the 
State University. We make the following quotation from a sketch published in the 
Resources of California: 

" Owing to close application to his professional work Mr. Ashburner has never 
taken an active part in politics, nor does he interest himself in that direction, further 
than to cast his ballot for the men who, in his judgment, will best administer the affairs of 
the State and Nation; but in all that concerns the growth and development of the Pacific 
coast Mr. Ashburner takes a warm and active interest, and we believe that, for one 
of the Trustees of the Leland Stanford, Junior, University, no better selection could 
have been made."

The Native Sons of California have sik i themselves to be worthy representative* 
of the honored pioneers. Association and su* ^ngs often make the character of men. 
Charles F. Crocker is the son of the late c p Crocker, who was associated with 

Messrs. Stanford, Hopkins and Huntington iu ^ding the first transcontinental rail- 
road. It is to his energy, tact and executive ability as chief of construction that great 
obstacles were overcome and the first railroad Imilt across the Sierra Nevada Mountain* 
under great disadvantage and in a very short time. Col. Crocker was born in Sacra- 
mento in 1854, and his surroundings and education have fitted him to carry out and con- 
summate the great enterprises planned by his illustrious father. His paternal ancestry 
was from good old New England stock and his mother, who has become distinguished 
for her many and generous benefactions, had the highest tribute paid to her as a wife 
by her husband in his lifetime. It was done at a great reception in the "Crocker 
Mansion" a few years since. During the evening amid dazzling splendor, sparkling 
gems and congratulatory speeches, Charles Crocker said: "I have lived in a cabin 
with my wife, and any success I have had in life I owe to this little woman." Col. 
Crocker attended College Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, New York, and, to gain a 
thorough practical knowledge of the railroad business, took service in the General 
Freight Office and other departments until he was called to the executive office of 
the Central Pacific, where he assumed the management of the 0. & 0. S. S. Co's afifairs. 
He was one of the delegates to Chicago that nominated President Harrison in 1888, 
and has been Vice-President of the Southern Pacific Railroad since 1879. He has- 
shown great executive ability as one of the railroad managers of the Golden State and 
as a representative of the Native Sons of California it was very appropriate to select 
him as trustee of the Leland Stanford, Jimior, University. 


Hon. Creed Haymond, the son of a distinguished lawyer, is a worthy representa- 
tive of a noble family of Virginia, his nativ^e State. He came to California at the age 
of sixteen j'ears and followed mining, packing and merchandising until 1859, when 
he commenced the study of law. The great questions of jurisprudence he grasped 
with almost intuitive knowledge and within one year he stood in the front rank of the 
profession. His comprehensive mind and keen perception enabled him to see the reason 
of the law and it may be truly said "he was born a lawyer." He was elected for fwo' 
terms to the State Senate and as a speaker, debater and practical legislator he has had 
but few who were his equal. In preparing the Code of this State, of which he was 
chairman, he did faithful and intelligent service. He was for a long time Colonel of 
the First Artillery Regiment of California, and also Captain of a company that went 
into service against the Indians after the Pyramid Lake massacre. He was a delegate 
to the Chicago convention which nominated President Harrison in 1888 and took a 
prominent part in the canvass. In 1882 he accepted the position of law counsellor for 
the Southern Pacific Company and is now their chief attorney at law. The momentous- 
questions that have come up for adjudication involving constitutional law and the 
rights of corporations and indi /^iduals under the Fourteenth Amendment to the Consti- 
tution, has been discussed and the position taken by Mr. Haymond sustained by the 
Supreme Court of the United States. As counsel for Senator Stanford he prepared thft 
papers for the Leland Stanford, Jr., University, and it seems eminently proper that h* 
was appointed one of the trustees.

Grand Treasurer, Grand Lodge, Cal., F. and A. M, 



The great farmer, statesman, and politician, "John Boggs, of Colusa," but fe\r 
persons in California but know him. He was born in Missouri in 1829. Came to Cali- 
fornia in 1849 with a party of adventurous young men who have filled important 
stations in life. Mr. Boggs was attending college at Fayette, Missouri, at the age 
of twenty, when like thousands of our leading citizens he threw down his text-books 
and started for the newly discovered gold fields in California. He tried his hand at 
digging for gold but a short time, but with that business sagacity that has been a char- 
acteristic of his life, commenced to buy stock and land. He continued to add to his 
possessions until at one time he had over 40,000 acres of land, 40,000 sheep, besides a 
large stock of horses and cattle from the most noted strains of blood. 

He has been engrossed with his large and extensive business, but being full of enter- 
prise, public spirited, and a born leader among men, it did not require much effort to 
draw him into the political arena, in which he has proved himself an astute and success- 
ful politician. He was a Supervisor of Colusa county for nine years, and from 1871 to 
1875 joint Senator for Colusa and Tehama counties. In the Democratic Convention 
that nominated Governor Stoneman he was Chairman, and is now the sitting Senator 
for Colusa county. He was appointed one of the Trustees of the Napa Insane Asylum 
by Governor Irwin and more recently a leading official at the State Prison at San 

We give the following extract from a contemporary : 

In politics Mr. Boggs is a Democrat of the advanced school. With strong party pre- 
dilections, he is not blind to its faults nor too prejudiced to admit them. With a manly 
charity for the opinions of others, and a noble toleration of other's views, he neverthe- 
less lacks not the courage to form and express opinions of his own. As a public 
speaker he is persuasive and convincing. He has a hearty, open, confiding nature, and 
simply storms the very citadel of one's affections and confidence, destroying the power 
-of resistance, and all without apparent effort on his part. 

Without a single particle of sanctimoniousness, he has the religion at heart of a 
Melancthon. While it would puzzle him to repeat the sermon on the mount, or the ten 
■commandments, or possibly the Lord's prayer, he would travel on foot over the Sierras 
in winter to serve a friend, and he daily does many of those things which we are com- 
manded to do, and leaves undone many of those things which we are forbidden to do. 
While his somewhat secluded life prevents his frequent attendance at church, he finds 
daily opportunity to illustrate practically those great virtues which the church is 
formed to inculcate. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Boggs have the southern warmth of hospitality, with the results 
of northern experience engrafted upon it. Their home is one of the few ranch-homes 
in this State that one will travel a hundred miles out of his way to visit. 

Mr. Boggs is, in all respects, a man of broad and comprehensive views, and hia 
large experience and strong, practical common sense, will render him a valuable 
acquisition to the Board of "Trustees of the manificent enterprise about to be inaugu- 
rated by Senator Stanford. 


If your enemy hunger and thirst, give him food to eat and water to drink. Such is 
the divine command. Then how much more are we under obligation to give food and 
drink to a brother in need. The obligation of a Mason is not circumscribed by the 
walls of his Lodge or the boundary of his jurisdiction, and he can never afford to hedge 
the way of charity, or to practically bar out one who has been suddenly overtaken by 
a calamity far away from home, and is unable to withstand a rigorous examination. 
There is such a thing as entertaining angels unawares, and we can never afford to take 
a step or exact a rule that leaves fraternity out in the cold. The fact is every one in 
need is a brother, and the only test, is he really in distress and want? Any attempt to 
avoid this, by direction or indirection, is not only contrary to the principle of brother- 
hood, which is the central idea of the Order, but does violence to our consciences. If 
we are in doubt as to the worthiness of a brother soliciting need, give him the benefit of 
the doubt. As the sun shines upon the evil and the good, and the rain falls upon the 
just and the unjust, so should Masonry go forth on its beneficent mission. — Masonic

A Comfortable Room, or a Good French Dinner 











The phenomenal success the subject of this sketch has attained as a manufacturer 
and merchant entitles him to be classed with the eminent men of this country. Seven- 
teen years ago he obtained employment as a clerk in a furniture store in San Francisco, 
and has advanced step by step, until now he is the largest dealer in household, unique 
and artistic furniture in this State, and controls the business largely in the State of 
Oregon. Mr. Chadbourne was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1849, received a thor- 
ough education in his native city, and engaged in the furniture business, in which he 
became an expert in all branches. Af the age of 23, in 1872, he emigrated to California 
and took a position as clerk in a furniture store on Market street, San Francisco. In 
1877 he opened a store with a small stock of goods at 727 Market street. By judicious 
management and close attention his business assumed proportions that necessitated 
larger and more commodious quarters. He selected a larger building in 1879, and 
enlarged his premises to meet his growing trade. In 1883 he moved into the magnifi- 
cent building comprising Nos. 741, 743 and 745 Market street, containing five lofty 
stories, with a capacious basement extending beneath the entire structure, which is 
60x170 feet, built expressly for him under his supervision, and from his plan and design. 

He has branch stores in several of the interior cities in this State, and has reached 
out and extended his branches into Oregon, Washington Territory, Idaho, British 
Columbia and Alaska on the north, to Nevada and Montana on the east; on the south 
to Arizona, New Mexico and South America, and across the ocean to the Hawaiian 
Islands, Auitralia, China and Japan. 

"Mr. Chadbourne is a man of great natural abilities, quiet and unassuming in 
demeanor, yet genial and social in the highest degree in the society of his large circle of 
friends. Endowed with a fine physique, robust health and a world of practical experi- 
ence, he possesses all the qualifications for a successful merchant. His temperament is 
ardent, his nature sanguine and his disposition generous and charitable. Bitterness, 
rancor nor hate find no lodgment in his breast. He is a live man par excellence, and no 
TDeliever in theories or isms of any sort; he believes in a man as he finds him, in society 
as it is, and regulates his life accordingly." 

He is President, Vice-President or manager of several public enterprises and pro- 
jects for the development of our State. Although his extensive business, to which he 
gives his personal attention, absorbs most of his time, he has of late years taken a lively 
interest in politics, and especially municipal afifairs. During this year he was chairman 
of the Grand Jury of the city and county of San Francisco. The searching inquiries in 
«11 the municipal affairs, and the efiicient service rendered by this Grand Jury has been 
the subject of much favorable comment by the press, and the approbation of the best 
■citizens. We quote from the Daily Bulletin oi July 13th: 

" Judge Levy returned thanks to the jurors for the able manner in which they had 
performed their duties, and discharged them from further service. 

" The jury then retired to the jury-room and adopted the following: 

" ' Resolved, That the thanks of this Grand Jury are due to its foreman, F. S. Chad- 
Tjourne, for his zeal and energy in all the matters connected with the business of the 
Orand Jury, and for his activity and industry in all matters connected with the institu. 
tions of the city government. We commend in him an able and intelligent officer, and 
trust that he may be elevated to official life in this municipality in the interest of good 
and honest government.

There are but few men in this State who have been more prominently associated 
in the development of the great San Joaquin valley than L. U. Shippee, ex-Mayor of 
Stockton. He was a pioneer, and commenced his career as a clerk in a large grocery 
house, in the city of Stockton. His industry, economy and business sagacity brought 
him popularity, wealth and position in society, and at an early day he was prominent 
in various enterprises having for their object the development of the State, and e^pe- 
cially the city of Stockton. As a merchant, farmer and banker he has been eminently 
successful. In 1807 he associated himself with others in forming the Stockton Savings 
and Loan Society, which was one of the first, and is now the largest savings bank out- 
side of San Francisco, and of which he has been a Director since the formation, and 
President for the last 12 years. 

Mr. Shippee has never accepted any office except as Councilman and Mayor for the 
city of Stockton, but has been president of every corporation or association in which 
he has been interestad. For 15 years he has been president of the San Joaquin Valley 
Agricultural Association, and also a Director of the State Agricultural Society, being 
the oldest ofl&cer in the board. He was President of the State Agricultural Society for 
1887, and re-elected for ISSS. At an early date he took a deep interest and was one of 
the leading men in building gravel roads out of Stockton. He was the chief organ- 
izer of the Stockton Combined Harvester and Agricultural Works, with a capital of 
§300,000, whose sales, in agricultural machinery and combuicd harvesters, were over 
$286,000 in 1886. He is a positive man, of a genial nature, of few words, quick per- 
ception, and grasps opportunities for advancement that men of slower thought would 

His sympathy for those who are making an effort to Ijetter their condition in life 
has been intensified by his own struggles, and to help one of this class he give.« lav- 
ishly without publicity, and charity seekers are always anxious to get him to head the 
list. Time has dealt gently with him, although his life from boyhood has been one of 
continual activity and mental strain. He is tall and erect, nearly six feet in height, 
and has an elasticity in his step that betokens years of active labor. 

When the historian makes up the scroll of the battle of life in the eventful times 
that transformed the barren plains of this great inland valley into homes and produc- 
tive farms, the record will be incomplete without a full description of the trials, 
struggles and triumphs of the pioneers, and prominent among the kings will be tha 
name of L. U. Shippee, ex-Mayor of the city of Stockton. 


Persons who have never belonged to any Fraternal Order cannot properly 
appreciate the amount of beneficial discipline to be obtained by becoming a member of 
some of them. It affords a most valuable, practical education, that is available in the 
affairs of ordinary life. A new member becomes rapidly versed in the forms of parlia- 
mentary ttsage, and is soon ready to play his part in any public occasion with that 
dignity and skill which comes from practice alone. The responsibilities of taking and 
holding the various degrees is a constant development of character, accustoming one 
to a range of discipline that can be obtained in no other way. 

Nor is the benelit to be derived one of mere utility merely; one becomes more of 
a man in the fullest and largest scope of humanity. His charity becomes larger, 
loosening his purse-strings which otherwise might be too coldly clutched, for he has 
been accustomed to giving in his Order, and he grows to feel more and more the 
universal brotherhood of all men. The calls to the bedside of the sick and dying 
awaken a spontaneous sympathy with the sufferings of others, and a readiness to 
give freely of one's time and thoughts to alleviating the sufferings of fellow-beings. 
And the solemn occasions, when brothers view the pulseless remains of one whom 
they had known and worked with, bring home to them with greater and greater force 
the questioning, deep and strong, of what is life and what is death ? of what is the 
present and what the future?

mouth, Virginia. He has the honor of being the first Bishop of Northern California,, 
having been consecrated in 1874, Miien he removed to California. His eminent ability 
as a minister and educator has given him a wide reputation, extending to Europe. 
Liberal offers have been made to him in the East, which have been declined, preferrmg: 
to enjoy our climate and pleasant associations surrounding the college of St. Augustine

The triumphs of peace were forcibly illustrated when, at the close of the late civil war, 
over l,CuO,000 soldiers who had left their happy homes and endured the privation incident 
to military life for four years stacked their arms at Appomattox Court House and 
resumed their former occupation in office, factories, or at their farms. The subject of 
this sketch was a notable example of the American citizen and soldier, whose patriot- 
ism called him to the field of battle, and after gaining high honors and a responsible 
military position, tendered his resignation for the more congenial occupation in com- 
mercial pursuits. He was born in Hillsdale county, Michigan, December 2, 1839. His 
father was a pioneer in '"the West," and he was given the best advantages for a thor- 
ough education that the commoii schools afforded, and finished in the Northern Indiana 
seminary. He commenced his career a.3 a salesman in a leading store in Northern 
Indiana on Saturdays, when there wa? no school. His tact, aptitude and ability were 
soon recognized, and he quickly became one of the permament force. At 18 years of age he 
was employed in the County Auditor's office, and at the age of 20 years was Chief 
Deputy Auditor of St. Joseph county, Indiana. Soon after becoming of age he was 
elected clerk of the city of South Bend, Indiana, which office he held in connection with 
that of Deputy County Treasurer of St. Joseph county. About this time the Studebaker 
Bros. Manfacturing Co. offered him a position as cashier of their great works at South 
Bend, Indiana, which offer was reluctantly declined, as the " war fever " was raging, 
and the Hon. Schuyler Colfax, speaker of the House of Representatives of the United 
States, had telegraphed him to come to Washington to receive a clerkship for a 
paymaster in the army, who was assigned to duty in the " field." 

After a few montlis' service he was called to the office of the Paymaster-General, 
of the United States Army, and given the responsible position as assistant to the 
chief clerk of the Paymaster-General's Bureaix of the War Department. His duties- 
required intelligent and arduous labor in protecting the Government against fraudulent 
claims, and at the same time to cut red tape when necessary for our wounded soldiers 
and officers. His rectitude, tact aud good judgment in fultilling tlais delicate position 
gained for him a high reputation from the authorities, and his services were sought for 
and required after the close of the war. Having been in active service, he could not 
brook the restraint and remain in the dull routine of official life in Washington, and 
resigned arid went to SpringSeld, Missoui-i. In a short time he engaged to represent a 
mining syndicate organized to work and develop mines in Idaho. After four years of 
rough pioneer and mining life he returned to Indiana in 18G0, and in tlie fall of the 
same year engaged to come to California as a pioneer and proprietor in handling the 
vehicles made by Studebaker Bi-os. Manufacturing Co., excepting the years 1880, '81 
and '82. During these years he was engrossing clerk of tlie California State Senate 
one session, and Deputy State Controller during Governor Perkins' administration. At 
the close of this administration he again associated himself with the Studebaker Bros. 
Manufacturing Co.. and accepted the management of this great and growing business of 
the Pacific Coast Branch, located at 201 and 20.3 Market street, San Fi'ancisco, which 
position he now holds. 

He is a representative American citizen, whose education, official experience and 
association in the higher walks of life have given him an attractive address that is 
characteristic of the cultured polished gentleman. He has a fine physique, ruddy com- 
plexion, martial step, and has a subtle power as a conversationalist that gives him 
great influence and efficiency as one of the leading and representative business men of 
this State. During a long and continuous employment in responsible commercial pur- 
suits as sole representative or manager, or in civic official station and military service 
of his country, requiring mental capacity, sagacity and good judgment, he has made a. 
clean record and won the highest commendation by the heads of government. He- 
joined St. Joseph Lodge, I. O. 0. F. at South Bend, Indiana, of which the Hon. 
Schuyler Colfax was a member, and from which grew that strong attachment in life 
between him and Mr. Ames. He married Miss Sarah J. Massey, daughter of one of 
the pioneers and leading families of South Bend, Indiana. This happy union has been, 
blessed with two promising sons, the eldest being now engaged as an assistant to his 
father in his extensive business.

There are many kind-hearted, liberal spirited and modest citizens who by their 
ability, education and association become leaders in society without effort or a desire on 
their part. Their philanthropic nature, Ijenevolence and rectitude bring them in close 
sympathy with their fellow-men, and they are recognized and accorded the highest type 
of American citizenship. The subject of this sketch belongs to this class, and is one of 
the most highly esteemed citizens of this State. He is a descendant of a noted ancestry 
that trace their lineage to the hardy Scotch and English for over two centuries. His 
maternal and paternal grandfather fought in the Revolution of 1776, his grandfather 
on his father's side lacing the trusted and confidential agent of General Washington. 
His father, Enos R.ose, was a soldier in the war of 1812, and gained considerable 
notoriety for his valor, endurance and successful feats in the perilous duties as a courier. 
He was born in Richland county, Ohio, October, 1822, and was reared on a farm, 
learned the trade of a millwright and carpenter with his father, and lived Avith him until 
he was twenty-eight years of age. During this time he not only built mills, co-operat- 
ing with his father, Init run one that he had erected, sawing the western forests into 
house material for l)uil(ling homes and helping this wonderful march of civilization. In 
IS5S he removed to California, his family, consisting of a wife and one daughter of ten- 
der years, accompanying him. He commenced farmiiag in Marin county, and after a 
few year.s of successful husbandry, purchased a large tract of land (2,200 acres) twelve 
miles south of Petaluma, where he has since resided. A portion of this princely estate 
was waste salt marsh land which has been reclaimed and become more productive 
under his management and direction than any tract of this character of land in this 
State. While Mr. R.ose has filled in full measure the duties of a liberal and puljlic 
spirited citizen, his career as a model farmer and sagacious breeder of line cattle and 
horses has given him a national reputation as an expert in nicMn;/ horses and cattle. 

Ii: this connection as an importer and breeder he has the best herd of Devon cat- 
tle in the State, and his stud has produced a number of the most noted roadsters and 
trotters, among whom are Nellie R., who made a mile in 2:\1% in a race, in the seventh 
heat, a record that has never been broken. All through his life lie has had pi-oier/Ss, and 
to his assistance and wise covinsel a largo number of young men owe their successful 
career. He was a close friend of the late Hon. Henry Vrooman, and rendered him 
material aid in the arduous struggle to lay aside the blacksmith's hammer for the law 

He is a devoted member of the Baptist Church, and labored assiduously, and has 
given a liberal support to sustain the Baptist church at Petaluma. 

At the organization of the Sonoma, Napa and Marin District Agricultural Associa- 
tion he was one of the chief promoters, its lirst President, and served five years as 
such. He became a member of F. and A. M. in Ohio, and was one of the charter mem- 
bers of V'itruvius Lodge, No. 14G, at Bloomiield. He is now a member of Petaluma 
Lodge, No. 77. He married Miss Anne Kenworthy, a native of England, a lady of 
refinement and lovely character. In her lifetime her christian graces and devotion to 
her husband and children and the poor and distressed of her neighborhood live in the 
memories of those who knew her. This happy union was blessed with two daughters, 
Anna E. and Florence L., who have been to their pai-ents both a credit and comfort. 
They were married in June of this year to H. W. Nicholson and F. L. Graj'^, young 
men of sterling character. 

Patriarchal in appearance, honest in purpose, a man of sound judgment, with a 
deep sympathy for mankind, he has won the highest respect and esteem among his 
associates, and is worthy to be classed with the eminent men of our coxintry. 

The Mason is constantly reminded of tho great truth of universal brotherhood. 
It is in the air he breathes. All the symbols and associations of the Lodgeroom are 
fragrant with fraternal sentiment. In all the councils and deliberations it sheds its 
holy inllueuce upon every heart. lb is a grand and glorious thought to the Mason that 
by the universality of tiie Order, the divine principles of Brotherhood, Charity and 
Benevolence are taught in every language and among all people.

We feei proud of the men who are of that class of native born Californians who 
are good representatives of the Argonauts. Opportunity, climate and descent have 
developed a race of men mentally and physically who are the peers of any nation. 
Edwin F. Smith was born in Sacramento in 1853. His father, Capt. F. C. Smith, was 
a pioneer to this State and took an active and prominent part in developing our 
resources. His mother, Lydia G. Petrie, was a most estimable woman, who endured 
privations of frontier life and to whom was left the care of their son and daughter after 
the death of her husband. At an early age the subject of our sketch commenced the 
battle of life by selling papers in Sacramento, and at 12 years of age was driving a 
milk wagon for wages which were given to his revered mother for the support of the 
family. Attending school, working on a farm, in saddle as a vaquero at intervals, was 
his career until he had gained his majority, when, happening in the office of the Pacific 
Union Express one day, a total stranger to him at (hat time (Mr. J. H. Burnham, now 
of Folsom), estimating liis ability, solicited and at once engaged him as "letter clei'k " 
for the Sacramento office and Pony Express rider. When this company closed busi- 
ness he entered into the employ of Wells, Fargo & Co., and served through all the 
departments during the eight years he was in their employ. In 1876 he tried mercantile 
life on his own account, and in 1879 was elected Secretary of the Constitutional Con- 
vention. In 1880 he was elected Secretary of the State Agricultural Society, and has 
been continuously re-elected, including 1SS9. At the time he took the position the 
receipts were |;34,000; now they have reached to over $90,000. His tact, executive 
ability and large experience add to his efficiency as an executive ofiicer, and it seems 
to be a position which he naturally adorns and is suited to his taste and desire The 
State Agricultural Society is a subject that Mr. Smith warms up upon; he favors pro- 
gression, and is a hearty supporter of any and all projects to make the society useful. 
He keeps a vigilant eye on all wrong-doers, so tiiat they do not seek his acquaintance 
and give all racing vinder the management of the State society a wide berth. He 
believes in discipline of the turf, and all who take part in its pastimes; claiming that 
duo dignity and rectitude can here be upheld as well as in any other calling 

He served as Secretary of the Senate, 25th session. Extra session 1884, 26th ses- 
sion, and Extra session 1886. A newspaper correspondent wrote of him thus while 
acting in this capacity: 

"The proportion of distances from ear to ear, from eye to chin, from nose to eye- 
brow, from left corner of mouth to dome of forehead, is observed according to Hogarth's 
description of a well-made face. Mr. Smith is an excellent reader and calls the roll 
with power and vivacity. The nerves in his boots tremble as the chords in his throat 
vibrate. He is a hard, conscientious worker, and fills the position with credit to himself 
and satisfaction to the Senate." 

Nature endowed him with a fine physical development and bright intellect. During 
his incumbency as Secretary of the State Agricultural Society he has given the Direc- 
tors great aid in its management, and to his quick foresight and business tact is 
greatly due the success of that institution. To adjust details and harmonize difierences 
in an organization of this character requires a mind especially adapted to this clas.j of 
business, and fortunately for the Society they have such a one in their present Secretary. 

He is a man of family, consisting of a beautiful and devoted wife and two lovely 
children, and is thoroughly domestic, enjoying the home life with those around him 
whom he loves and lives for.

There are in every community modest, unassuming men of high intellectuality, 
sound judgment and rectitude, who avoid publicity and official honors. Their 
influence is recognized and felt in their circle of acquaintance, and their example and 
cpotless life is one of the great factors in the body politic in elevating mankind and 
making happy homes. The subject of our .sketch belongs to this class, and his life ha; 
been one of adventure, trials and usefulness. His career has been such that it has 
won for him the highest respect, esteem and contidence of his fellow-citizens. Mr. 
Corey can claim a noted and royal ancejtry. Hia ancestors on the side of his father 
came to Massachusetts in 1630 from England and the records show that many of the 
name filled high positions of honor and trust. His father Capt. Reuben Corey, whose 
parents were Loyalists during the Revolution, removed to Canada when he was two 
years of age, and became a leading citizen of that country, and held a commission 
from her Majesty Queen Victoria, for valor and military service in quelling the 
rebellion in Canada, in 1836. His mother, Malinda Reynolds, was a native of 
New York and one of the direct descendants of the nine partners who were granted 
a township in Dutchess county. New York, by George III. 

They reared a family of ton children, Hiram being the third member, who are 
among the leading familiei of this State. In 18d6 they emigrated to California, and 
their hospitable Jiome, especially to ministers and itinerants of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, of which they were prominent members for over 50 years, was most cordial 
and real fraternal generosity. ^ 

Mr. Corey is a native of the Province of Quebec, born March 7, 1831. LlTce 
thousands of the robust sons of Canada, he drifted into Vermont in 1850 and California 
in 1852. He commenced cutting logs in the redwood belt of Marin county and 
with his brother Noah the next season farmed at Corte Madera. On one of their 
oyages for provisiom to Sau Francisco, during the winter of 185J:, iu a small vessel of 
four tons, they drifted out through the Golden Gate and were oa the Pacific ocean for 
three days and nights without water or food, except fourteen kernels of corn. 

^ Tho next season he commenced dairying at Nicassio, and continued for several 
years. In 18G5 he took a quartz-mill from Los Angeles to Owen's river for the New 
York company. From 1806 to 1870 ho carried on dairying, two yearo at Tomales; and 
in 1872 ho leased the Buena Vista rancho, near Salinas. Monterey county, containing 
8,000 acres of land, which he afterwards purchased. From 1872 until this year, when 
lie sold thi:j rancho, he has continuously followed dairying and mixed fnrming, and it 
is conceded that his ripe experience and sagacity enabled him to establish a reputation 
as a fai'mer and dairyman second to no one on the Pacific coast. In 185G he took a 
trip to Vcrmfnit, and the same year was united in marriage to Miss Rose Frost of 
Essex, a leading family of that State, and to whom in a large degree was due the success 
that has been attained by him in amassing a fortune. It is but a just tribute to his 
estimable wife to say : that in all his varied and checkered business ventures Mrs. 
Corey has been a most faithful, efficient and sagacious coadjutor, lovable companion, 
and model of a New England wife. This happy union was not blessed with children, 
but a deceased sister of Mr. Corey left a family of four small children, the youngest a 
babe, who were taken to their home, reared as their own cnildren and given umisual 
advantages for travel and education ; the youngest of whom, Miss Rose Littlefield, is a 
late graduate from Mills Seminary. 

Mr. Corey has held the position of Director of Monterey District Agricultural 
Association, School Trustee, as also Trustco of the Presbyterian Church of which 
himself and wife arc devoted members and liberal supporters. He is a man of few 
words, genial,' a high sense of honor and n good type of a family noted for their 
physical development and miral courage. Ho has passed through an ordeal of priya- 
tion, misfortune and disappointment, and duriag all these years has maintained a 
reputation for integrity, honesty and reliability.

Our membership is confined exclusively to Masons in good standing, residents 
of the Pacific Coast, and we feel warranted in the assertion that our mortality will 
be less than other associations located elsewhere. 

Our rates of assessment are mathematically graded, and based on the age of 
each member, thus maintaining justice and equity between the members. A vast 
and constant outflow of money is going out of the State which can and ought to 
be kept at home by patronizing this Association. 

We call attention to the fact that there have been over 1 ,000 certificates issued. 
We fraternally solicit the aid and assistance of the Masons of the Pacific Coast. 
For particulars, address Secretary at 

HOME OFFICE, 106 POST ST., Room 5 





There is a diversity of opinion as to the origin and founder of Masonry. At the 
building of King Solomon's Temple, the workmen were distinguished by certain marks 
in dress and insignia whereby the vast throng of laborers, artisans, and superintendents 
could be readily distinguished. It is claimed by others that it antedates this memor- 
able event in history. Through all the ages the triumphs and trials, persecutions and 
favors are handed down, mostly through tradition. The senseless and unwarranted 
condemnation of this humane order at different periods is remembered only as an out- 
burst of ignorance, bigotry, and superstition. In the most enlightened communities 
and nations of the world it is the most universal, most popular, and the most strongly 
established of any benevolent and charitable order. 

It has survived nations, dynasties, and kingdoms, and among the enlightened and 
civilized nations of the world it has grown in popularity, and seems intrenched in the 
hearts of the people as the grandest fraternal order in the universe. The Pope in the 
Vatican and the peasant have met at the same shrine, while king and plebeian have 
formed the sacred circle around the altar of Free Masonry. Kings, potentates, and 
emperors have worn the lamb's-skin apron as members of the craft in the lodge-room, 
while ihe humble mechanic has presided in the East as Worshipful Master. 

The late Emperor of Germany and George Washington were Masons, and each has 
left a record of bis labors and devotion to the craft. Whilst it is not in a strict sense 
a charitable order, benevolence and aid to the sick and distressed are features that have 
cry.staUized into relief committees, orphan asylums, and Masonic homes for the aged 
ar.d indigent, that it has become a great humanitarian society. Masonry seeks no 
proselytes, and those who pass the portals of the lodge-room enter of their own "free 
will and accord." 

If the question were asked, Where does Masonry exist ? it could be pertinently 
answered. Where cannot it be found? Its cardinal principle is a firm belief in the 
existence of God, the Maker, only Supreme Ruler of the universe, and on this founda- 
tion rock it will exist until time shall be no more, and the earth shall bo gathered 
together as a scroll.

In the life and career of the Grand iSecretary of the Grand Lodge ©f California, 
which position he has held for 33 years, is a striking illustration of devotion and effi- 
cient service seldom seen in any society or country. 

Brother Abell is a native of New York, well-preserved, 70 years of age, has a 
vigorous, elastic step, and capability in the active duties of life that has been polished 
by a life's work in Masonry. He has held various offices of trust and responsibility, 
among which are United States Consul to the Sandwich Islands and State Senator from 
San Francisco. 

Mr. Abell was made a Mason in Federal Lodge, No. 1, Washington City, D. C, on 
the 11th day of May, 1852; was exalted to the Royal Arch in Columbian Chapter, 
No. 15, Washington City, May 16, 1852; received the orders of Knightho':>d in Wash- 
ington Encampment, No. 1, in the same city, June 16, 1852; and was made an Inspector 
General of the 33d degree in the Supreme Council for the Southern Jurisdiction of the 
United States, in the city of Charleston, S. C, in 1868. In 1855 he was elected Master 
of California Lodge, No. 1, and filled the position for two years. He served California 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, No. 5, one year as its High Priest; for eight years was 
Commander of California Comnxandery, No. 1, of Knights Templar; was Grand High 
Priest of the Grand Chapter one year; Grand Commander of the Knights Templar of 
California during the year 1861; and is at preient an Honorary Inspector General of 
the 33d degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. To his untiring energy and 
perseverance the Masonic fraternity owe the existence of their magnificent Temple in 
San Francisco. He has been President and General Manager of the Masonic Hall 
Association ever since its organization in 1859. See page 113. 


There is no man on the Pacific Coast more prominent in the higher degrees of 
Masonry than Judge Caswell. His genial nature, broad experience, and high literary 
attainments make him a fit representative of these eminent orders. His former occupa- 
tions and profession, as editor, lawyer, and judge, were filled with distinction, credit and 

His Masonic life commenced in Nevada City in 1850. He was exalted to the Royal 
Arch degree, January, 1855; created Knight Templar, April 5, 1855; crowned an active 
thirty-third degree member of Supreme Council for Southern Jurisdiction in the city of 
Baltimore, May, 1870; and in October, 1882, was made Grand Minister of State of the 
Supreme Council of the 33d degree Inspector Grand, for the Southern Jurisdiction of the 
United States. 

He was Master of Nevada Lodge, No. 13, for four years; High Priest of Nevada 
Chapter, No. 6, for nine years; Commander of Nevada Commandery, No. 6, for three 
years; elected Grand High Priest in 1858, Grand Commander in 1873, and Grand Sec- 
retary of the Grand Chapter, and Grand Recorder of the Grand Commandery of Cali- 
fornia in 1878, which position he still occupico. At the recent session of the Supreme 
Council, 33d degree of A. & A. S. R., Southern Jurisdiction, held at Washington City, 
Mr. Caswell was elected Grand Minister of State of that body. See page 115.

Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of California 




The following sketch is from the Masonic Record : He was raised a Master Mason 
in St. Paul's Lodge, No. 124, in Auburn, N. Y , December, 1848, exalted to the Royal 
Arch degree in David's Chapter, No. 34, of the same place, August, 1853, and knighted 
in Salem Town Commandery, No. 16, at Auburn, in March, 1859. He came to 
California in 1849, and has taken an active part in establishing and advancing Masonry 
on the Pacific Coast. He served as Master of Golden Gate Lodge, No. 30, in .San 
Francisco, High Priest of California Chapter, No. 5, Commander of California Comman- 
dery, No. 1, and has held the office of Grand Treasurer of the Grand Chapter of Royal 
Arch Masons of the State of California since April, 1874. He filled the honorable and 
responsible position of Grand Commander of the Grand Commandery of California in 
187G-'77 and '78. He was elected Secretary of the Triennial Committee in 1878. Mr. 
Graves seems to have inherited in some degree his love of Masonry, as his father, who 
died in San Francisco in 1880, had been a valiant Sir Knight over fifty years, and at the 
time of his death was the oldest Mason on the Coast. 

Mr. Graves haj an abiding faith in the future of the Order, is frank and manly in 
bearing, believes that all Masons are brothers that owe each other assistance and 
sympathy, and hia genial nature and personal character exemplify in the highest degree 
the noble and magnanimous principles of Masonry. See page 119. 


Col. Stevenson, venerable and distinguished brother, was elected the first Grand 
Master of the Gi'and Lodge of California, April 17, 1850, During a long and useful 
life he ha3 justly earned the title of being the father and founder of Freemasonry on the 
Pacific Coaut. 

His masonic career commenced in Phoenix Lodge, No. 40, New York, in 1821, and 
he was elected Senior Warden of his lodge December 22, 1882. "He has the honor of 
having been the Master of the only lodge in the city of New York that had courage to 
hold regular meetings and perform the Masonic work during that unreasonable panic 
and fanatical cra::c. 

He receiv^ed the Royal Arch degree of Masonry in Phoenix Chapter, New York city, 
in 1832, and was elected King. The celebrated "Stevenson's Regiment" was recruited 
by him, under authority to sail around the Horn a.nd serve in California. He 
commenced this work at the adjournment of the Legislature of New York, of which he 
wa ; a member. As a lawyer, military man, and civilian he ha3 filled exalted positions, 
and during a long and arduous career in serving his country and humanity he has led 
an honest and blameless life. Our esteemed brother is nearly ninety years old, and 
until a recent accident was performing the active duties of life. As men and Masons 
We can point with pride to such men as our countrymen and fathers. See page 1 21 . 


There is no one of the many symbols of speculative Masonry more interesting than 
the investure of the initiate with the lambskin or white apron. It is the first tangible 
evidence that he has been admitted into the Order. It is an emblem he laever parts 
with, however high he may ascend. The form and its decorations may change, but the 
meaning remains, and should ever remind him of that purity of life and rectitude of 
conduct which is so essential to his gaining admission into the celestial Lodgi above 
where the Supreme Architect of the Universe forever presides. It is more ancient than 
the gclden fleece or Roman eagle, and more honorable than the star and garter. All the 
ancient statues of India, Egypt, and Persia are decorated with this emblem. The royal 
standard of Persia was originally an apron. This emblem was worn by the Levites and 
Egyptian priesthood, and is said to have represented the dual nature of God. Worn by 
the sower as a receptacle of seed, the apron was a feminine symbol; worn by the priest- 
hood, it came to be regarded as a symbol of the duality of the dii'ine nature. — Masonic

There seems to be a happy combination in the names inherited and given to the big 
hearted, broad-brained son of Shasta, representing as he does the orator, statesman 
and popular leader. Kis life has been one of incessant toil from early youth and bj-- his 
own exertions he has placed himself in the foremost rank as a lawyer, legislator and 
citizen. Nature fashioned him in a mould of attractiveness, and his intellect and com- 
manding form stamp him as a representative American. At the earnest solicitation of 
the better element of society, without regard to party, lie served as District Attorney 
of Shasta county thirteen consecutive years. As Senator from the Twenty-fourth District 
he gained a high reputation as the sagacious guardian of the interests of the people, 
and was a prominent candidate for Governor. He is wrapt up in his profession and 
has steadily and persistently declined official position as a State officer or by appoint- 
ment from the Chief Executive of the United States whilst he has taken an active 
part in national politics as a chief in party counsels and seems never so happy as 
occasion offers to help and advance personal friends politically, by efforts directed only 
on the plane of dignity, fairness and a fidelity that wins the admiration of rivals. Aa 
a contemporary has said : "He is a man conspicuous among that class of clean Cali- 
fornia statesmen who have lived their lives here, trained in our ways; knowing our 
needs, and who aim to elevate, purify and dignify the profession of politics. 

The recent trial of the case of Barlcley vs. Copeland, in which he was associate 
counsel, showed his ability as an attorney-at-law. Twenty-four days were consumed in 
the trial and eight days in argument by counsel, of which Brother Taylor took two days. 
The Red Bluff Daily Sentinel, in its issue of April 5th, gave an extended notice from 
which we make the following extract : "We were there ourselves and know whereof 
we speak and cannot let this opportunity pass to say that we have never witnessed in 
the State the exhibition of better forensic talent and eloquence than that displayed by 
Hon. Clay W. Taylor in his closing argument for plaintiff. We cheerfully concede 
that our measure of the orator had not been commensurate with his deserts, and we 
take pleasure in saying that Mr. Taylor ha s no superior and but few equals as a lawyer 
and orator in this State. If true merit, pr ofound legal knowledge, strict fidelity to ths 
interests of his clients, and brilliancy as an orator are stepping-stones to fame we 
bespeak for him in days to come a future of eminence and celebrity." 

He served two terms as Most Worshipful Grand Master of Free and Accepted 
Masons with signal ability, and has been advanced to the Thirty-second Degraa in 
Scottish Rite Masonry, and is also a Knight Templar. 

He has been a conspicuous factor in building up the A. 0. U. W., and served as 
Grand Master Workman one term, and also Representative to the Supreme Lodge. 

His father, who was a physician, died when Senator Taylor was a youth. In all of 
the relations of life, as a public servant, a sagacious legislator, fearless prosecutor and 
lawyer he looms up among his associates as Mount Shasta does among the peaks of 
Northern California. 

The institutions and genius of our country have developed the best character, 
broadest statesmanship and truest nobility. We admire the men who laid the founda- 
tion and controlled the destiny of the United States of America for one hundred years. 
And it is a subject for congratulation to know that the descendants from our honored 
sires are capable and worthy to bear the names of the illustrious statesmen of a great, 
free and powerful nation.

In the realm of art and science a large number of our modest citizens, who are pos- 
sessed of a high intellectuality and philanthropic nature, have given the best years of 
their life to unremitting toil in the laboratory or in the field of science for the benefit of 
their fellow-men rather than for personal aggrandisement. The subject of our sketch 
is of English ancestry, and on his mother's side a direct descendant of the Rev. John 
Rogers, the martyr. He was born in 1S19, close to the line between Vermont and 

He has been a student, inventor and discoverer; and, like thousands of others, his- 
disinterested labor will be fully appreciated in the years to come. In his youthful days 
his parents were given much anxiety on account of a constitutional disability and did 
not expect him to attain middle age. Although a young man he comprehended his sitiia- 
tion, and almost intuitively commenced a course of treatment for himself. He laid 
aside his schoolbooks and projecbed a journey around the world, an original idea that 
met the approval of his family physician. He traveled extensively but leisurely, study- 
ing nature and gathering information from the faculty, gained a ripe experience in 
chemistry, medical and surgical pathology, and subsequently graduated with highest 
honor M. D. He commenced practice in New York, and soon took a front rank as physi- 
cian and surgeon. Although he was devoted to his profession, his philosophic mind 
led him to investigate in all branches of science, among which were chemicals used 
in the art of photography, and in which he achieved much distinction. 

Outside of his devotion to science he is a natural inventor, which the records ol 
the Patent Oflice at Washington will rjhow. He has invented a compound self-register- 
ing instrument (this is unpatented), by which humidity and all changes of temperature, 
together with velocity of wind, are accurately registered upon prepared chemical slates; 
these slates requiring removal only once in two months. Tlie doctor, at one time, had 
fifty of these self-registering, silent sentinels on his estate in and around Tiburon. The 
late Jas. Lick, knowing his scientific attainments, sought his counsel and advice in 
making his princely bequest for the Academy of Sciences. To investigate, invent or 
discover some new principle, device or compound that was original and was of practical 
benefit to tlie world has been his delight and sliibboleth all tlirough life. His knowl- 
edge of mechanism and large experience in the field of investigation have enabled him to 
render aid of great value to inventors, which has been given with an open hand and 
disinterested generosity. 

He has invented, or rather, discovered, the chemicals to use in a process for 
embalming bodies, that has been put in practical operation a number of years, and been 
pronounced by scientists a positive protection against decomposition — lifelike in 
expression. To this eS'ect Dr. Lyford has afiidavits sworn to, which space prevents 
giving. One of which, in part, is as follows: 

' ' I left San Francisco with the remains destined for Ferres Morlaas, France, at 
which place we arrived April 4, 186S — the remains in the same perfect and lifelike con- 
dition; even the position of the body had not in the least clianged. 

" We had the inexpressible pleasure to again look upon the kind features of our 
departed friend, perfect as in life, natural in color and exactly in the condition in which 
Dr. Lyford had placed him nine months since." 

In fact, the preparation was thought to be so remarkable in France that space was 
given for it in a Catholic church, where it remained for four months upon exhibition, 
meeting with general surprise from tlie press, scientific bodies and hundreds of others 
who were attracted by curiosity. The friends of the deceased desired to return thanks 
to Dr. Lyford for the efforts he had made to show them, as he did in perfection, the 
features of their beloved friend; and they were greatly comforted with the hope that by 
means of the process adopted by the doctor they could, any time, remove the body 
from the vault and again behold the features of the deceased, intact. 

The same affidavit pays tribute on behalf of the French relatives of the deceased 
to the chemicd development of the young State of California, as thus far superior to 
that of the Old World. 

In 1861 he felt it to be his duty as a surgeon to proffer his services to the United 
States Government. He was at his post during the war, and his valor, skill and devo- 
tion to the sick and maimed comrades gained him a national reputation. We give an

episode of his long career: During the march on to Mobile a torpedo exploded and 
landed a soldier in the top of a large tree. Dr. Lyford found both arms and both 
legs broken, with one or two compound fractures. During the Grand Army reunion in 
San Francisco a veteran soldier pressed through the crowd and hailed the Doctor as 
the man who had taken him out of a tree, and by his matchless skill given him bis life 
and each limb of his body. 

After the close of the war, in the field of inquiry and investigation, he visited the 
Pacific Coast and our genial climate, and hallowed associations have held him for all 
these years since. He was induced to commence practice in bis profession in San Fran- 
cisco, continuing for a period of ten years, until tlie demand for his services night and 
day was so large he felt it iinsafe to longer withstand the continual physical and mental 
strain upon nature; consequently he retired from practice in 187G. 

Since which, however, his untiring nature could not rest without the development 
of his natural iu tuition as the investigator of nature's laws and theii* application to 
practical beneficence. 

In this respect he has given much study upon the chemical stratum of soil, topo- 
graphy and climatic variations of our coast; and, without hesitancy, pronounces Cali- 
fornia the Garden of Earth; and Tiburon Poiat tract, Marin county, one of the most 
picturesque and favored spots along the Bay of San Francisco. Dr. Lyford bought, 
and with his untiring nature developed, a railroad and ferry terminal from and to Saa 

Tiiis favored place of earth he has contured and subdivided into suburban villas, to- 
be know as Lyford's Hygeia or Goddess of Health. He desires to make it a center of 
education, science, art and perfect health. The climate and topography of Tiburon 
is one of startling diversity, to meet all conditions therefor; and has been pronounced 
by scientists to be one of the most favored in climatic influences for health and com- 
fort in tlie world. 

He is a member of the celebrated Columbia Commandery, Knights Templar, of 
Washington, D. C, and has had distinguished honors, as appears from the following 
article printed in the "Masonic Record" in 188-4: 

"Tuis Commandery will be especially recollected as that placed in the most promi- 
nent position, and as special guard of honor at; the layirg of the Garfield monument 
corner atone, at Golden Gate Park August 24, 1883, to the memory of our dead Presi- 
dent, which honor to (Tarfield called out a military and civic pageant such as was never 
before seen in San Francisco. This commandery also had the honor of bearing the only 
national colors in the Templar line. One of the regulations of the order is that no 
special nationality sliall have prominent recognition, all being under banners of the 
order, no matter of what nation. But the exception was made in favor of District of 
Columbia and the capital of the nation. These national colors were the same that 
shrouded the bier at the funeral cortege over the mortal remains of our dead President 
Garfield, on the way from the National Capital to his late home in Ohio; it was conse- 
quently a great feature upon this memorial occasion at San Francisco. The following 
are the names of Sir Knights from Columbia Commandery present at tlie fitting tribute 
to Garfield's memory at Golden Gate Park August 24, 1883, and which names were 
placed in the corner-stone with the casket: 

"Sir William H. Brown, Past Eminent Commander; Sir Abner T. Longley, Eminent 
Commander; Sir John Wilson, Generalissimo; Sir James F. Allen, Captain General; 
Sir George Gibson, Treasurer; Sir F. T. Howser, Quartermaster; Sir Dr. Benjamin F. 
Lyford, Sir Edward Fitzki, Sir Thomas Cavanaugh, Sir William T. Crump, Sir F. 
H. Spear. 

"Of the above-named Sir Knights, William H. Brown (Past Eminent Commander) 
who conferred the order on the late President, and William T, Crump, attended upon 
the late President during his illness; Dr. Benjamin F. Lyford, now of this city, recipient 
of the following beautiful tribute, also held most intimate friendship with President 
Garfield. Accordingly Dr. Lyford was the recipient of a unique New Year's call at his 
country seat in Marin county, from a special convoy dispatched from Washington, to 
deliver this tribute in person to Dr. Lyford, as explained by the following letter:

His scientific attainments, technical education and professional skill have given him 
a national reputation, and his vigor of body and mind at the age of seventy years is a 
signal of hygiene. 

He has been a benefactor, and has conceived the plan of establishing a city at 
Point Tiburon that shall be a great sanitarium — the abocle of a strong healthy race, 
and work out a very interesting, social and physiological problem for mankind. 

His inventions, scientific papers and discoveries have been original and of practical 
benefit to his race, and together with his benefactions will perpetuate and keep his 
name in remembrance by a grateful people. 

He was married to Miss Hilarita Reed, a highly educated and most amiable 
lady, witli whom, at their county seat in Marin county, life's dream of happiness ajid 
contentment are perfectly realistic in the full measure of ideal life.

The trials, vicissitudes and triumphs of life in a new country, and, especially Cali- 
ifornia, are well shown in the history of William Vanderhurst, one of the leading mer- 
chants and a highly esteemed citizen of Salinas City. He was born in Marion county, 
Mississippi, in 1833, and received but a common school education as his father died 
while he was a child of six years. He commenced the battle of life at sixteen years 
of age as a clerk and continued with a small interval at school until the, age of twenty 
years, when he emigrated to California via Isthmus of Panama, arriving in San Fran- 
cisco February, 1853. He tried the mines for one year. Fully disgusted with hia 
mining experience he now turned his attention to lumbering and farming, alternating 
as a laborer, contractor and farmer. In 1859 he opened a general mercantile store at 
Watsonville and did a very prosperous and lucrative business, which was swallowed 
up in mining speculation. In 18(54 be commenced clerking for E. L. Goldstein & Co. of 
Watsonville and was admitted into partnership within one year and remained for n term 
of three years. In 1868 he entered into partnership with Chas. Ford and Lucius S. 
Sanborn and established the house of Ford, Vanderhurst & Co. at Salinas City, which 
has maintained its ascendency as the leading firm in general merchandise during all 
these years in Monterey county he being the resident manager and the active 
business man of this large house. He has served as Councilman, Trustee, for a time 
acting Mayor of Salinas City, and in all enterprises connected with the development 
and advancement of this section he has always been at the front. In 1856 he married 
Miss Jane Hatch, a union that has been blessed with a family of ten children, seven of 
whom, four boys and three girls, are living. In January, 1862, he was initiated a mem- 
ber of Pa jaro Lodge, 110, F. and A. M. Passed February, 1862, and raised March 1, 1862. 
He took the several degrees in Capitular Masonry in Temple Chapter, No. 41, during 
the months of January and February, 1882, and was Knighted in Kan Jose Com- 
mandery. No. 10, in October and November, 1882. He was a charter member of 
Salinas Lodge, No. 204, F. and A. M., and elected the first Senior Warden, serving in 
the position two year.3. In 1871 he was elected Worshipful Master of the same lodge and 
served two years in succession and also during the year 1876. He was elected the first 
High Priest of R. A. Chapter, 59, and served in that capacity continuously for three 
years. He was a charter member and first Generalissimo of Watsonville Commandery, 
No. 22, and served as such two years. At the expiration of his term he was elected 
Commander and served in that capacity for a term of two years. He was elected 
Grand Senior Warden of the Grand Commandery of this State at its late conclave and 
Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter, R. A. M., of California in April, 1889. 
Brother Vanderhurst has been a leader and continues in the front rauk in all enterprises 
connected with his section and is now a member of the Board of Trade and director in the 
Salinas Bank. He is tall, has a commanding form, unassuming, and has a certain magnet- 
ism in his manner and address that impresses a stranger and seems to constitute him a 
leader. The cares and ordeals of a checkered and busy life have not lessened his vitality 
and the chances are favorable to many years of usefulness and higher honors, civic and

Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter R. A. M. of California 



The subject of this sketch received the first degree in Masonry on St. John th& 
Evangelist's day, December 27, 1849, in Little Falls Lodge, No. 181, Little Falls, 
N. Y.; was passed to the degree of Fellow Craft January 17, 1850, and raised to the 
Sublime Degree of Master Mason January 24, 1850. He was elected Secretary of the 
Lodge immediately thereafter, and was elected its representative to the Grand Lodg& 
which met in New York City in 1850. In 1851 he was elected Senior Warden, and 
within the year received the degrees of Ma.'k and Past Master in Oneida Chapter of 
Royal Arch Masons, No. 40, at Utica, N. Y. -In the spring of 1852 he came to Cali- 
fornia, and after the usual mining experience in Calaveras county, settled in Columbia, 
Tuolumne county, where he affiliated with Columbia Lodge, No. 28, and Columbia- 
Royal Arch Chapter, No. 8, receiving first therein the Most Excellent and Royal Arch 
Degrees. In 1858 he was elected Secretary of Columbia Lodge, and in 1859 Master, ia 
which position he was continued for six years. Meanwhile he was appointed Senior 
Grand Deacon by Grand Master Belcher, and filled successively the positions of Junior 
and Senior Grand Wardens, Deputy Grand Master, and was elected Grand Master in 
1867. Brother Davies was a friend and admirer of that typical western Mason, 
Brother Isaac Davis, and renewed his unsuccessful efforts to arrest the Masonic griev- 
ance of that early day, viz : The unrestricted rendering of unauthorized versions of th* 
Masonic ritual. This jurisdiction being peculiarly affected by this unusual Masonic 
complaint, for the reason that here were gathered Masons from all the States of th© 
Union, as well as many from the Masonic families of the Old World; hence we- 
frequently found in the organization of a Lodge a Master from Mississippi; a Senior 
Warden from Vermont, with a Virginia Junior and a New York Senior Deacon. The 
forms of expression in reciting the traditions of the craft have differed widely in the 
several States, and our work was being marked by the peculiarities of all. 

"T The subject being again brought to the attention of the Grand Lodge, a committee 
was appointed of which Brother Davies was named as chairman, and his report may be 
found on page 99, vol. vi, Grand Lodge Proceedings of 1863. 

This report, after an exhaustive debate, was adopted. A committee, consisting of 
the Grand Master, the Deputy Grand Master and three Past Masters, was appointed te 
revise the work. That committee assembled at the Masonic Temple in November, 
1863, and after a working session of two weeks completed their labors, adopting the 
present work, which, after exemplification at the ensuing session of the Grand Lodge, 
in 1864, was by them approved and made obligatory l^pon the Lodges. 

He was the first Deputy Grand Lecturer appointed under the resolutions of the 
Grand Lodge, and he labored earnestly for the success of the system, which has since 
become "the Masonic Work of the Pacific Coast." He was, at the session of 1863, 
Chairman of the Committee of Jurisprudence, and has remained a member of the 
committee with its present able chairman, Brother W. C. Belcher, Past Grand Master, 
the succeeding twenty-five years. 

During the years 1859 to 1865, after filling the several stations in the Grand 
Council, he was elected Grand Master of the Grand Council of Royal and Select 
Masters in 1865. 

Brother Davies also served in the several stations of the Grand Chapter of Royal 
Arch Masons, and was elected Grand High Priest in 1873. He was also interested and 
active in the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of California, having been 
created a Knight of that illustrious Order in California Commandery in 18^6, and, 
after service in different stations, was elected Grand Commander in 1874. 

He was one of those who organized the Grand Consistory of the Scottish Rite in 
1870, and was elected Grand Commander-in-Chief in 1879, serving his term of three 
years, at the expiration of which he was elected by the Supreme Council to receive the 
Thirty-third Degree, who ordered it conferred as an honorarium. 

Brother Davies has also served as President of the Convention of High Priests for 
this jurisdiction, and is its present President. 

He has had the honor of being placed at the head as the chief executive officer of 
every Masonic organization in California. 

He was bom in Utica, N. Y , in 1828, being now in his sixty-first year. He was 
married in 1849. His wife joined him in California in 1853, and to them were born

four children, the eldest, Wm. S., being a graduate of West Point of the class of 1874. 
Mrs. Davies died in Stockton in 1875, and the youngest daughter, Mrs. Laura H. 
Graham, in this city in October, 1887. The remaining children, Mrs. Kate McKune, 
and Thos. A. Davies, the youngest son, live with their father with two grandchildren. 
Thos. A. is a Mason; the Third Degree was conferred upon him by hia father, and he is 
now a member of Mission Lodge, No. 169, and Golden Gate Chapter, O. E. S. 

Brother Davies is a man of temperate habits, high character, modest, unassuming 
and very popular. This was shown in a marked degree by being elected to the posi- 
tion of County Clerk of the city and county of San Francisco (which position he now 
fills) by a large majority, while his own party was in the minority. Although he has 
led an active life, he is well preserved and has a vim in his eye and an elasticity in his 
step that presages many years of usefulness to his fellow-men and acceptable labor 
among our craft. Our engraving is a good likeness of a representative Mason which 
will be recognized by many as a nt tribute to one who has given thirty-seven years of 
continuous official labor in California to Masonry. See page 125. 


Since 1872 the Sacramento Business College, founded by Mr. Atkinson, has been 
one of the prominent and noted educational institutions of the Pacific Coast. It has 
become popular as a place to attain a thorough and reliable business education and 
graduates have been very successful in securing and holding good positions in the lead- 
ing commercial houses in this State. It now occupies the whole upper story of Hale 
Bros', block, one of the finest buildings in Sacramento. The proprietor, Edmund 
Clement Atkinson, has given most of his useful life as a teacher and educator. 

He was born at Charleston, Maine, November 17, 1837. The early part of his life 
was spent on a farm, attending school, teaching and as a student at Waterville College. 
He was for several years a teacher in Comer's Commercial College, Boston, and after- 
wards joint owner of a chain of commercial colleges at Janesville and Oshkosh, Wis- 
consin, and Rockford, Illinois, known as Atkinson & Reed's Business Colleges. He is 
a native of Maine and a descendant from Sir Hugh Atkinson, of Oxfordshire, England, 
whose coat of arms, consisting of a cross voided between four rampant lions repre- 
sented on a blue field, and surmounted by a helmet, is still in the possession of the 
Atkinson family. This portrait is a very fair likeness. His scholarly attainments, 
classical education and literary pursuits, coupled with natural ability, render him an 
able and fluent writer, and a most interesting and impressive speaker. 

As a Mason, he is earnest, zealous and faithful, and as a presiding officer in a 
Masonic Lodge he has no superior on the Pacific coast. His Masonic character is a liv- 
ing exemplification of the principles of the Order. He is member and PastMaster of 
Sacramento Lodge, No. 40, a Companion of Sacramento Chapter, No. 3, Royal Arch 
Masons, and a Knight Templar in Sacramento Commandery No. 2. 

In 1882 he was elected Senior-Grand Warden, and for two years thereafter was 
re-elected to the same position. At the Annual Convocation of 1885 he was advanced 
to Deputy Grand Master, and at the communication of 1886, he was elected M. W. 
Grand Master. 

He still resides in the city of Sacramento, and devotes his whole time to the duties 
of his position as principal of his business college.

Our country has developed a race of men that are the peers of any in the history 
of the world. The popular and beloved Pastor of the First Congregational Church of 
this city is an excellent representative of thatNewEnglandgenius whose love of liberty, 
keenness, thrift, inventive faculty and scholarship, grounded on native ability, have 
permeated the American character and made the tier of comparatively small States on 
our northeastern border dominant in American institutions. 

He was born in Freyeburg, Maine, in 1847, and is a descendent of a noted 
ancestry. His mother, Annie Kimbal Dana, being one of the most intellectual and 
highly accomplished woman of her times. He has labored hard to gain that zenith of 
fame ho enjoys — as an orator, minister, lecturer and writer. He is a graduate of Dart- 
mouth College and Andover Theological Seminary. 

He is greatly beloved by his pp.ople, and in the great missionary work of the State 
as Pastor of the oldest and wealthiest Congregational Church in the State, and as a 
loved brother among his ministerial brethren, ho exerts a leading and helpful influence, 
being always ready to further plans which will strengthen and relieve the poor and 
build up the best interests of California. His church nobly seconds all his efforts. As 
we have said, Dr. Barrows is still young, having hardly yet reached the full maturity 
of his powers. But he has already accomplished much. Educational institutions, 
from kindergarten to college, have felt his beneficent influence; and the charities and 
churches he has aided have been not a few. His public lectures are inspiring. His 
addresses are many and instructive. It may reasonably be expected that the greatest 
achievements of his life are yet in the future, a rich fruitage from the choice culture, 
the high resolves and the earnest discipline of the past. 

He became a member of California Lodge, No, 1, F. &. A. M., passing through the 
various degrees in May, 1888. Joined California Chapter, No. 5, Mark Masters, in 
September, receiving his degrees in October, 1888, and became a member of Golden 
Gate Commandery, No. IG, Knights Templar, in February, 1889. At the last annual 
Communication in October, 1888, he was unanimously elected Grand Chaplain of the 
Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Grand Jurisdiction of California. 

Freemasonry has ever had a charm for the imperial families of Europe, and the 
German potentates are no exception to the rule. Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, 
was initiated as a Freemason at Brunswick, August 14, 1738. The late Emperor 
William was initiated May 22, 1840, and has for many years been recognized as the 
Protector of the three Grand Lodges, Berlin. Emperor Frederick III. was also a 
member of the Order, but we are not in possession of the date of his initiation. 

Each Masonic jewel, each implement of our Craft, each piece of furniture in the 
Lodgeroom, each symbol, each ofScial title, each Masonic ceremony, from the least to 
the greatest, is an object lesson to Craftsmen, a truth teacher. They point Godward, 
Masonward and selfward. They teach us our obligations to the Grand Architect of 
the Universe, our Maker; to our brethren, our equals; and to ourselves, of whom alone 
we need to be afraid. We should love our Maker, love our fellows, and fear only our- 
selves. — Keystone. 


A Lodge is said to be tiled when the necessary precautions are taken to prevent the 
approach of improper persons; and it is said to bu the first duty of every Mason to see 
that this is done before the Lodge is opened. The Tyler sitting at the door of every sym- 
bolical Lodge and permitting none to pass not duly qualified, and who has not the per- 
mission of the Master, is the symbol of a deeper meaning. In like manner should all 
the avenues of approach to the intellect be sentineled against doubt and error, and all 
the doors of the heart guarded against the protean shapes of temptation. The con- 
science is the Tiler of the soul, and it should never be allowed to go to sleep in the 
sentry-ljox. It should keep a strict watch on the senses that they let in no evil influ- 
ences and impressions; it should guard the tongue and keej) the lips from guile; it 
should, in short, keep all the ways of life. How well for us all if we could sincerely 
say of our spiritual temple, in the presence of our Divine Master, '"' we are securely 
tiled. " — Masonic Record.

The eventful, useful and honored career in life of W. J. Hill, Mayor of Salinas 
City, Monterey county, portrayed by the hand of a Mayne Reid or Sylvanus Cobb, 
would be a recital that would fill us with admiration of his character and class him as 
one of the heroes among the intrepid frontiersman. 

He was born near Prescott, Canada West, in 1840, and came to California in 1862, 
and after visiting the gold fields of British Columbia entering Alaska, and rambling 
over considerable territory he located in Idaho, obtained a stock ranch and established 
Hill's Ferry, on the Owyhee river, at the junction of the Chico road from California 
and the Humboldt road from Nevada. He kept this ferry during the years of 1865, 
1866 and 1867, and held the key to the travel on these roads. It was during this period 
that he was repeatedly attacked by the Indians; fired at more than one hundred times, 
and was seven times wounded, but always managed to "hold the fort." 

He introduced the first steam -press and published the first daily paper in Idaho. 
His reputation as an Indian fighter and a brave man had spread throughout the North- 
west; and being a man of liberal education, extensive reading and industrious habits, 
it is not surprising that his paper was the leading one of the territory. 

He was elected County Clerk, Sherifi", Tax Collector, Centennial Commissioner 
from Idaho and tendered the Republican nomination for delegate to Congress. In 
1876 he became proprietor of the Salinas Index, which he still publishes, and it is recog- 
nized as one of the leading journals of the State. He was elected Senator two term3 to 
represent the Sixth District, embracing the counties of Monterey, Santa Cruz and San 
Benito. ^ 

In the State Legislature, his force of character and the intelligence he brougnt to 
bear on every question he advocated, compelled the respect and admiration of his col- 
leagues. His introduction of, and exhaustive argument on, the famous Debris Repeal 
Bill, gave him a State-wide reputation. Making no pretensions to oratory as a fine 
art, he has a ready and forcible style of speech and writing which is at once eloquent 
and convincing. Through the columns of the Index, and in his public addresses, he 
has always been a strenuous advocate for the improvement and adornnment of the 
city of his adoption, and his election to the position of Mayor of Salinas in 1886 gave 
him opportunities for carrying his ideas into efi'ect. 

Mr. Hill is a leading member of several fraternal organizations. He is Past 
Master of Salinas Lodge, No. 204, F. & A. M.; Knights Templar Salinas Chapter, 
R. A. M., and is ninety-fifth degree member of the Royal Masonic Rite. He is Past 
Master of Sausal Lodge, No. 47, A. 0. U. W., and was representative to the Grand 
Lodge; Master of Salinas Grange; one of the Directors of the Salinas City Board of 
Trade, Monterey Agricultural Association, and President of the Monterey District 
Trotting-colt Stables Association. 

He is married to a highly accomplished woman, and their only son occupies a home

"Through heredity and his training on the frontier, Mr. Hill possesses great 
strength of character, and a marked individuality. An untiring worker, relentless in 
his determinations when he feels he is right, he possesses withal those qualities of mind 
and heart which bring to him the warmest friends. " 

It is a good thing for men to be made to realize their true station among their 
fellows. It is a good thing to go each week to some fraternal Lodge, where the brothers 
meet on the level and part on the square. The terms are Masonic, but the principle 
characterizes all our fraternal societies. It is a blessed thing to be constantly reminded 
that we are all brothers, the children of a common Father. There can be no assump- 
tion more ridiculous than that of superior worth founded upon money or ancestral 
blood. If fraternity had no other excellency, its leveling power would command it to 
the public.

The subject of this sketch can claim no higher honors than his ancestry: Huguenot 
on the side of his father and Puritan on the side of his mother. Like thousands of 
young men in our country, he has by his own exertions in manual and literary callings 
in early manhood, by teaching school in winter and agricultural pursuits in summer, 
laid the foundation for his useful life. He was born in Alabama in 1839 and is a fine 
type of high intellectuality and physical manhood. In the prime of life, esteemed, 
surrounded by an interesting family, consisting of an estimable wife and five children, 
living in a beautiful and luxurious home in Seminary Park, Alameda, it may be truly 
said that his career in life has been a success and covered with distinguished honor. 

He is now manager of the California Fuse Association, which position he has 
filled since 1879. In Fraternal Society life he occupies membership as follows : He 
was raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason, January, 1866, in St. Mark's 
Lodge, No. 36, Simsbury, Connecticut; demitted to Payson Lodge, No. 379, Payson, 
Illinois; and to Oak Grove Lodge, No. 215, Alameda, California, which lodge he served 
as Master in 1885. Was exalted a Royal Arch Mason in 1881, in Alameda Chapter, 
No. 36, Oakland, and knighted in Oakland Commandery, No. 11, K. T., in 1881. Was 
Eminent Commander of Oakland Commandery in 1887. Received the degrees of the 
Scottish Rite in San Francisco in 1882, and assisted in the formation of the bodies of 
that Rite in Oakland in 1883. Was Venerable Master of the Oakland Lodge of Per- 
fection, No. 12, in 1885. Was Wise Master Gethsemane Chapter Knights Rose Croix, 
No. 5, in 1886. Was Commander of De Molay Council of Kadosh, No. 3, in 1887. 
Crowned an Honorary Inspector General of the 33d degree, January 16, 1887. Was 
greeted a Royal and Select Master in Oakland Council, No. 12, in 1882, and was 
Thrice Illustrious Master in 1884, and was elected M. P. Grand Master of the State of 
California April 16, 1888. Crossed the hot sands of the desert with the first San 
Francisco Caravan in August, 1 883, and having passed the Moslem test, is a member of 
Islam Temple Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He is also Charter Member of Garden 
City Lodge, No. 1745, Knights of Honor and Charter Member of Ashler Lodge, No. 
165, A. O. U. W. 

Too MUCH praise cannot be accorded this time-honored organization (the Knights 
of Pythias) for the fidelity with which their principles have been carried out during the 
existence of the pi-esent epidemic. Every sick Knight has been attended to from the 
instant his case has been made known ; the best medical aid secured, and the most 
careful and attentive nurses obtained. Ho has been visited every day regularly and 
promptly, and in every case where a Knight has died, loving, fraternal hands have closed 
his eyes and prepared him for his final rest. — Jacksonville Times- Union. 

The intellectual characteristics of Freemasonry are the great charm to those o' 
decidedly scholarly tastes who are included in its mystic circle. It gives direction to 
their studies and theh* thoughts. Tlie brother of the greatest learning is the brother 
who may most enjoy its intellectual features. He will unravel mysteries which are 
hidden to the thoughtless or comparatively uncultured. He will find a peculiar pleasure 
in tracing up the teachings, the forms and the ceremonies cf the craft to their originals. 
To him Freemasonry will be a study of perennial interest, and association with those of 
like qualification and intent will be to him an unalloyed enjoyment. — Keystone. 

There is no part of the Masonic ceremony more grand and touching than when 
the Worshipful Master calls upon the members of the Lodge to joinin a common suppli- 
cation to the Supreme Master above. Every Mason should feel, at such a moment, the 
sacredness of the occasion. And yet we have seen Masons smile and joke about getting 
down on their marrow-bones — in short, inclined to make light of Lodge devotions. The 
fact is, there is nothing more chastening and comforting than an abiding sense of our 
immediate dependence upon God, and the beautiful and simple invocations of our 
fraternity are well calculated to banish for the moment the cares and selfish thoughts of 
the world, and diflfuse a holy calm through the mind of each brother.

The subject of this sketch was the only son of John Hamilton and Phoebe Stickley, 
who were descendants of the sturdy Scotch and Dutch who settled in the Shenandoah 
valley, V^irginia. John Hamilton was one of the intrepid pioneers, which the status 
and environments of this country has developed. In 1827 he emigrated to Illinois, 
when Chicago was a log-fort, and subsequently took part in the Blackhawk war. In 
1829 he made the journey on foot from Illinois to the Shenandoah valley, and the fol- 
lowing spring married, and with his family settled near Peoria, Illinois, in 1837, where 
he followed his occupation of blacksmith for many years. In 1861, although 57 years 
of age, he tried to enlist as a private in the Union army, and was refused on account of 
disability — the loss of one eye. William T., his son, has inherited many of the 
characteristics of that heardy race of pioneers, and in his border life on the Western 
frontier and in California has .shown that bravery, tenacity and independence that 
belong to hio ancestry. He was born in Bloomington, McLane county, Illinois, May I, 
1838. He attended the public schools — a short time at the Baptist college in Pekin; 
learned the trade of a blacksmith, and thus equipped, with the addition of a robust 
constitution, he commenced his career in life. in 1857 he started across the x^lains for 
California v. ith no capital, under contract to shoe mules for his passage. 

Ho tried mining on Frazer river and drifted back to Marysville, California. In 
1862 he took atrip xo his old home in Illinois, thence to New York, Panama and back 
to Marysville. During this voyage he contracted the Panama fever, and, being unable 
to work at his trade, went to work for an undertaker and worked about a yeai", which 
circumstance, in a large measure, has changed his avocation in life. He joined Yuba 
Lodge, No. 5, I. O. O. F., in 1864, and was a charter member of Mountain Vale Lodge, 
No. 140, I. 0. 0. F., and served in every office from Warden to Noble Grand, which 
office he held four terms, and was elected Grand Representative in 1870. Of the mem- 
bers of this Lodge he was one of twenty-two who built a fine lodgeroom. 

He joined Truckee Encampment, 1. 0. 0. F., in 1876, and is now a member of Oak- 
land Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., in which he served three terms as treasurer, and of Oakland 
Encampment, and is also a member of Oakland Rebecca Degree Lodge, No. 16. la 
1873 he became a member of Sierra Valley, No. 84, F. & A. M., and Donner Chapter, 
No. 39, R. A. M., at Iruckee. In the year 1877 he changed his membership to 
Oakland Lodge, No. 188, F. & A. M.; Oakland Chapter, No. 36, R. A. M., and 
joined Oakland Commandery, K. T., No. 11, in all of which Masonic organizations- 
he is a life member. He also belongs to the Scottish Rite bodies, and has attained 
his thirty-second degree. In the year 1887 he joined Oakland Lodge, No. 2, 
A. 0. U. W. ; served as Foreman one term and Receiver eight years. At the last ses- 
sion of the Grand Lodge he was elected Representative and nominated Grand Receiver, 
and was given a very complimentary vote for one who had never been before that body. 
He is a member of Oakland Lodge, No. 2,058, K. of H., and has been Receiver eight 
years; and also a member of Live Oak Lodge, No. 17, Knights of Pythias. During all 
these years he has never received one cent in benerits. In 1876 he removed to Oakland 
and entered into the undertaking business, and in 1879 was elected coroner, serving 
successively four terms — in all, seven years. His administration was very popular, and 
conducted in such an upright and efficient manner that the public press, during all that 
time, made no criticism. After years of active public service he decided to retire from, 
business, and sold his undertaking business and agreed not to open the same in 
Alameda county for five years. 

Travel and rest brought back his former vigor, and believing that employment 
in some congenial business would be better suited to his condition induced him, in 
February of this year, to establish the most complete and best arranged undertaking 
establishment, on the corner of Geary and Stockton streets, San Francisco, on the Pacific 
Coast, and one that compares favorably with any in the United States. He is married 
to a most estimable lady, his domestic relations being of the happiest. 

He is genial, unostentatious and generous. A man of few words, sound judg- 
ment, sensitive nature and keen intellect; his great influence among his associates haa^ 
been gained by strict integrity and unwavering rectitude in adversity and prosperity. 
Blessed in his family associations, esteemed among men, honored with responsible 
official positions, civic and fraternal, his career in life has been one of usefulness, and 
a model of enlightened American citizenship.

Mr. Curtis has been the architect of his own fortune. At an early age he was left 
an orphan, and worked on the farm eight years. He was thrown on his own resources, 
and his early lessons were those of independence and pei severing industry. He evinced 
great mechanical genius, entered into service with Bent & Garrity, builders and con- 
tractors, and then of Mitchell & Brady, architects cf 8t. Louis, Mo. Since he has been 
in this State he has been closely identified as superintendent, builder and assistant or chief 
architect of a large number of our largest and finest buildings. He was assistant architect of 
the Baldwin Hotel and Theater, architect of the Sonoma County Courthouse, Humboldt 
County Courthouse, Mutual Relief building of Pebaluma, Santa Cruz county buildings 
and jail, supervising architect of the new City Hall, San Francisco, and architect of 
Boyd & Davis' winery, corner of Second and Folsom streets, and Wells, Fargo & Co's 
new building, San Francisco. 

He is a member of the San Francisco Chapter of American Institute of Architects, 
and Treasurer of the same; he is also a member of the Pacific Coast Chapter of 
American Institute Technical Society of the Pacific Coast and has gained a high reputa- 
tion in his profession. Although he is one of the most active and busiest men in San 
Francisco, his genial nature and benevolent heart have drawn him to our leading fraternal 
Societies. He is a member of Mission Lodge, No. 1G9, F. and A. M., California Chap- 
ter, No. 5, California Council, No. 2, California Commandery, No. 1, and Isham Tem- 
ple'. In the I. 0. 0. F. he holds memberships: Fidelity, 222, Oriental Encampment, 
57, Uniform Degree, No. 5, and Templar Rebecca Degree. As fitting adjuncts ho holds 
membership, S. F. Group Good Samaritans, No. 1, Ivy Chapter, Order Eastern Star. 

Mr. Curtis has a commaviding form and a strong attachment to military life. He 
is now Quartermaster Sergeant of the Fifth Regiment, National Guard of California. 


The young, level-headed and popular Ex-mayor of the city of Oakland has gained 
this highly honorable position as a representative of the business men and industrial 
classes of this municipality. Born in Erie, Pa., where he received a common school 
education, in 1877 he came to Oakland in company with his brother, W. Frank Pierce, 
engaged in the hardware business, his own exertions and close attention to business and 
liis knowledge of its details aided greatly in placing his enterprise on a prosperous basis 
until to-day the firm of Pierce & Co. is one of the most successful hardware houses this 
side of the Rockies. Mr. Pierce is not a politician, although a consistent and firm 
Democrat. He has never sought any public office and when the nomination of Mayor 
was tendered to him by his party declined it and only consented to become their 
candidate after he had been nominated by acclamation upon the earnest solicitation of 
friends, upon whom he knew he could depend for earnest support in an almost hopeless 
contest against overwhelming odds. He is the second Democrat elected on the 
Democratic ticket in the history of Oakland. 

He has always taken a deep interest in the welfare of his constituents, and his sterling 
integrity and reliability as a business man have given him a popularity among the sons 
of toil and an official position seldom gained by a man under 30 years of age. He has 
been a leading and active member of the Oakland Board of Trade, and was selected by 
the merchants of this city to act as one of the members of the Freeholders' Commissioa 
to frame a city charter. His brilliant career forcibly illustrates the triumphs of peace. 
Official position has been given without asking and against expressed desire. He has 
been closely indentified with the growth and development of Oakland, a city of homes 
and manufactories; believes in her future greatness, and is never so happy as when he 
is advancing her interests. In the F. and A. M. he has been signally honored. He is 
a member of Oakland Commandery, No. 11, Knights Templar, 32 degree in Scottish Rite 
Masonry, member of the Grand Consistory of California, and promoted to the Court of 
Honor of Washington, D. C, from which body he holds an official patent. 

Surrounded by an interesting family, honored and esteemed by his neighbors, 
there seems to be a bright future for him in keeping with the success he has attained in 
the past.

When Bums, the immortal poet, wrote the couplet — 

" The time will come, as come it must, 
When mau to man shall brithers be— an' a' that," 

he no doubt was giving expression to his own experience among his boon companions. 
There are men in every community whose sympathetic nature, kind-heartedness and 
benevolence find kindred spirits who associate together in fraternal and benevolent 
societies for more efficient work in deeds of charity and relieving distress. The suliject 
of this sketch is a good representative of this class, who find their greatest happiness 
in holding up the hands of their neighbor and frater "whithersoever dispersed around 
the globe." He was born at Chatham, county of Kent, England, December 20, 1825. 
At 14 years of age he commenced to learn the art of printing, and at the age of 18 
years he landed in Boston, wliere he pursued his avocation with the late Samuel Dick- 
inson, the founder of the Dickinson Type P'oundry. 

Mr. Filmer commenced to experiment in the use of the ele.;trotype in 1849, as 
applied to printing purposes, which has grown to be a business of mammoth propor- 
tions and workl-wide use. In 1853 he removed to New York city, and in 1858 was 
made a Master Mason in Keystone Lodge, F. & A. M. In the following year he 
advanced through the Chapter Degrees in Empire Chapter, of which the late Edward 
Hayes was High Priest. During the next year he had conferred upon him all the 
Degrees in Scottish Rite Masonry, and in 1861 attained the Masonic rank of a Thirty- 
third Degree Mason. In 1865 he came to San Francisco, and in 1879 he demited from 
Keystone Lodge, F. & A. M. — of which he had been a member for over 20 years — and 
was one of the founders and Charter members of King Solomon's Lodge, No. 260, of 
San Francisco. He was elected their first Treasurer; has been continuously re-elected, 
and is the present incumbent. 

The Filmer & Rollins Electrotype Co., of which Mr. Filmer is President, is the 
largest and most complete in its appointments and scope of work on the Pacific Coast, 
and among the prominent plants of the United States. 

Mr. Filmer is a fine type of the solid Englishman; courteous, frank and reliable. 
In business and fraternal circles he has the reputation of being an honest, upright 
citizen, whose integrity is undoubted and whose word is his bond. The nam^', 
Fraternity, is to him a shibboleth that means a universality of brotherhood, and a 
magic cord that draws "good men and true " together, for their common weal and 
happiness. Through good or bad report; in misfortune or prosperity, he has main- 
tained his nobility of character; and among those who know him best in the charmed 
circle of fraternal society life, or in commercial life, he is held in the highest esteem. 


In October, 1885, the Masonic Mutual Aid Association was organized for Masons 
only. The record made has been quite satisfactory to the promoters, who are among 
the prominent members of the craft. Graded assessments have been adopted, and the 
proceeds have been allotted in this proportion: 90 per cent to the Mortuary Fund and 
10 percent to the Reserve Fund, to be used for the establishment and support of the 
widows and orphans of deceased Master Masons. There are now nearly 1,000 mem- 
bers, representing $3,000,000 of insurance. Following are the officers and Trustees: 
Hon. Wm. T. Garratt, President; Hon. Jacob H. Neff, Vice-President; Chas. C. 
Wadsworth, M. D., Medical Director; Wm. A. Davies, Secretary; Joseph Elfelt, Treas- 
urer. Trustees: D. C. Allen, Franklin H. Day, Joseph Elfelt, Daniel H. Everett, F. 
Hagerman, Jr., Columbus Waterhouse. Home office, 106 Post street, S. F. 

DuRiNO last year the three great Masonic charities in England — the Royal Masonic 
Benevolent Institution, the Royal Masonic Institution for Boys and the Royal Masonic 
Institution for Girls — received in all contributions from members of the craft amount- 
ing to the grand total of 82,914 pounds sterling, which is 21,855 pounds sterling more 
than the highest total of any previous year. In addition, the Board of Benevolence 
made grants for charity amounting to 11,168 pounds sterling.

The Most Reliable Male and female Help Furnished Free of Charge 




The highest claim that this order has in and to Free and accepted Masons is that 
it is the most popular organization in Adoptive Masonry or Societies that are composed 
of Master Masons and the female members of their families. William S. Moses intro- 
duced the order into California in May 1869. Now there are nearly 100 Chapters with 
a membership of over 6,000 of the leading members in Masonic circles. 

The venerable Robt. Morris was the founder and his autobiography in relation 
thereto we herewith publish. 

" In these last years of my earthly pilgrimage I have been importuned by friends, 
old and new, to commit to paper while memory is clear and documents accessible, all 
the facts concerning the origination of the Eastern Star. From the period of my initia- 
tion into Masonry I had entertained the desire of introducing the female relatives of 
Masons into closer relationship with the Order. Through the immense influence of 
women so much might be done to bring the performances of Free Masons nearer their 

' ' These things I had pondered for several years in my mind, and I was fast coming 
to the initial step to sitting down to weave the warp and woof, which now constitute 
the Order of the Eastern Star. 

"Bowing now to the expresrion of a wish wide-spread and urgent, I proceed to 
overhaul my diaries, to tease my sluggish memory, and now (1884) sit down through 
quiet summer hours to rescue from oblivion the facts connected with the origin of the 
Eastern Star. One, witness, Mrs. Morris, still survives to substantiate the statements 
I am about to make. 

"About the hrst of February, 1850, I was laid up with a sharp attack of the 
rheumatism, and it was this period which I gave to the work in hand. By the aid of 
my papers and the memory ot Mrs. Morris, I now recall even the trivial occurrences 
connected with the work ; liow I hesitated for a theme ; how 1 dallied over a name ; how 
I wrought face-to-iace with the clock, that I might keep my drama within due limits of 
time. The name was first settled upon — 'J he Eastern Star. Next, the number of points, 
live, to correspond with the emblems on the Master's carpet. This is the pentagon, the 
signet of Solomon, and eminently proper to Adoptive Masonry. From the holy writings 
I culled four biographical sketches to correspond with my first four points, viz : Jeptha'3 
daugV^ter, named Adah, for want of a better, Ruth, Esther, and l^iartha. These were 
illustrations of four great congeries of womanly virtues, and their selection has proved 
highly popular. The fifth point introduced me to the early history of the Christian 
Church, where, amidst a noble army of martyrs, I found many whose lives and deaths 
overflowed the cup of martyrdom with a glory not surpassed by any of those named in 
Holy Writ. This gave me Electa, the Elect Lady, the friend of St. John, the Christian 
woman, whose venerable years were crowned with the utmost splender of the crucifixion. 
The colors, the emblems, the floral wreaths, and the esotery proper to these five 
heroines were easy of invention. They seemed to fall ready-made into my hands. The 
only piece of mechanism difficult to fit into the construction was the Cabalistic Motto — 
but this occurred to me in ample time for use. The composition of the lectures was but 
a recreation. Familiar from childhood as I had been with the Holy Scriptures, I scarcely 
needed to look up my proof texts, so tamely did they come to my call. To take from 
the ancient writings five prominent female characters, illustrating as many Masonic 
virtues and to adopt them into the fold of Masonry, the selections were : I. Jeptha's 
Daughter, as illustrating respect to the binding force of a vow. II. Ruth, as illus- 
trating devotion to religious principles. III. Esther, as illustrating fidelity to kindred 
and friends. IV. Martha, as illustrating undeviating faith in the hour of trial ; and 
V. Electa, as illustrating patience and submission under wrong. These are all Masonic 
virtues, and they have nowhere in history more brilliant exemplars than in the five 
characters presented in the lectures of the Eastern Star. It is a fitting comment upon 
these statements, that in all the changes which the Eastern Star has experienced at so 
many hands for thirty-four years, no change in the names, histories, or essential lessons 
has been proposed. 

' ' So my ritual was complete, and after touching and retouching my manuscript, as 
prof essional authors love to do, I invited a neighbouring Mason and his wife to join with 
my own, and to them in my own parlor communicated the degree. They were the first 
recipients, the first cf twice 50,000 who have seen the signs, heard the words, exchanged

the touch, and joined in the music of the Eastern Star. When I take a retrospect of 
that evening, but thirty -four years ago, and consider the abounding 600 Eastern Star 
Chapters at work to-day, my heart swells with gratitude to God who guided my hand 
during the period of convalescence to prepare a work, of all the works of my life the 
most successful. I spread abroad the knowledge of the Eastern Star wherever I went, 
equally in the border communities where ladies came in homespun, as in cities, 
where ladies came in satins. The new degree was received with ardor, and eulogized 
in strongest terms. I made several ineffectual attempts to systematize the work 
and confer the degrees in Chapters, but they all fell through, and I should never 
have done more with it, save to confer it in an informal manner, as at first, but 
for Bro. Robert Macoy, of New York, who in 1868, when I had publicly announced 
my intention of confining my labors during the remainder of my life to Holy Land 
investigations, proposed the plan of the Eastern Star Chapters now in vogue. He had 
my full consent and endorsement, and thus became the instigator of the present success- 
ful system. There is one practical result of the Eastern Star movement, the credit of 
which I am in nowise inclined to give to others ; this is the broader opening that is 
oSered to females for self-support. The deadly needle, the unwomanly washtub, the 
unwholesome country school, the sinew-wearing kitchen, are not now the only fields on 
which women, old and young, who are wrestling with the perplexities of human life, 
can win bread. Thousands and tens of thousands of places, cleanly, womanly, easy 
and fairly profitable, have been opened to them since the story of the five heroines of 
the Eastern Star was first disseminated in 1850. In almost every postoffice and court- 
house throughout the land, in a great number of banks and libraries, at the desks of 
mercantile houses, behind counters — but the catalogue need not be extended. Long as 
it is, it is daily lengthening, and every year the salaries of women are brought more 
nearly to those of men, as it is found that they are equally accurate and expert in 
business, and that the defalcations, forgeries, and general rascalities with which our 
morning papers are defiled are always the work of men; never of women. In conclusion, 
I may call to witness the thousand groups of men and women, who, in all these years, 
have sat under my voice while communicating the instructions of the Eastern Star, that 
no greed of money has actuated me in the work. How often have I refused fees offered 
me ; how of ten forbidden collections to be made for my benefit ; Monitors of the Eastern 
Star have been published by twenties of thousands, but the money profits were enjoyed 
by others, not by me. It is with honest pride that I make, as I have so often made, 
these declarations."

Order Eastern Star. 

It should not be forgotten that the primary object of this Order is to give practical 
efifect to one of the principles of Freema?ony, by placing in possession of the female 
relatives of Masons, a Key with which they may unlock, when needed, the benefits 
which are awaiting their disposal in the hearts of all good Masons. Every Mason carrie3 
vv'ithin his own memory and experience the evidence of his Masonic standing, whicli is 
ready for use wherever he maj' liappen to be sojourning. But how is his wife or other 
near relatives to prove her claim unless by membership in si^'jh an allied Society? In 
its organization it follows closely after the form of the Masonic Brotherhood, rather thiJi 
after the more modern fraternities. Its ceremonial work and teachings througnout are 
such as are well calculated to make the memberi who heed them wiser and better men 
and women. Because woman is barred out of our Lodges by ancient rules and usages 
and not allowed to participate in sundry matters of ritual or secret work, is that any 
reason why she should not share with her Masonic brother in helping to promote the 
great principles of the Order ? Chapters of the Eastern Star have everywhere been found 
to be no hinderance but rather important aids to Masonic Lodges by bringing the 
families of Masons into socially sympathetic relations to each other, and enlisting 
woman's gentle and amiable influence in behalf of many Masonic charities and good 
works. Filling, as she does, the principal offices in the Chapter, she has many important 
advantages, which are born of experience and official responsibilities.

There are but few men in this State who have been more closely connected with the 
development of our resources, or who occupy a higher position as an enterprising and 
honored citizen, than Thomas Flint. He traces his ancestry from the first settlers on 
the American Continent through nine generations — the eldest son having received the 
name of Thomas in each family. He was born in Maine in 1824; received a liberal 
education and diploma from Jefferson Medical College in 1849. He emigrated to Cali- 
fornia in 1851 and returned East late in 1852. In 1854 the tirm of Flint, Bixby & Co. 
was formed at Terre Haute, Indiana. Their enterprise was to purchase stock, sheep 
and cattle; a drove of which, containing 100 head of cattle and 1,300 head of sheep, 
arrived in Southern California in January, 1854. From this small beginning, with 
prudence and good management, this firm has, in connection with other enterprises, 
been .able to purchase 167,000 acres of land in California, and are now the owners of 
50,000 acres of the most valuable land, and on which are some of the finest fruit 
orchards in the State. In their various business connections besides farming, importing 
and breeding fine stock, they were largely interested staging, in which their Govern- 
ment contracts amounted to §75,000; wool commission, manufacturing beat sugar, and 
mining gold, silver, quicksilver and iron. 

He was a member of the Monterey county Board of Supervisors for three years, 
and served four years in the same capacity in San Benito county. He was a member 
of the commissions to establish the boundary line between Monterey and Santa Clara 
counties to partition Natividad, Los Virgeles, San Antonio and La Brea ranches (the 
first two in Monterey county, San Antonio in San Benito county, and La Brea in Santa 
Clara county), and has served tlie people in many other capacities. In 1875 he was elected 
joint senator from Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties, and discharged the 
duties of his office in an able and satisfactory manner. He is at present a member of 
the Republican State Central Committee, and was a member of the delegation from 
this State to the Republican National Convention which met in Chicago in 1884. He 
is aho a director in the Bank of Hollister and in the Monterey County District Agricul- 
tural Assoc'idtion. 

Notwithstanding the multifarious duties of his business, and the time devoted to 
public service, he is a prominent member of a number of fraternal organizations. In 
the Masonic fraternity he is a Past Master, Past High Priest, Past Commander and a 
member of the Royal and Select Masters, and the Ancient Arabic Order of the Noblea 
of the Mystic Shrine. 

In 1888 he was unanimously elected Worthy Grand Patron of the Order Eastern 
Star, and his administration has proved one of the best since its introduction into thi.^ 
State. His wife, Mary A., a highly, intellectual, noted and accomplished lady, served 
two years as Worthy Grand Matron of California, and Most Worthy Matron of the 
General Grand Chapter of the United States. 

His marital relations have proved most happy, and this union has been blessed 
with two sons and one daughter. 

The elder son, Tliomas Flint, jr., is joint Senator from Monterey and San Benito 
counties, and one of the prominent legislators of this State. 

Dr. Flint has served in the same capacity as Senator, and is at present a Director 
in the Grangers' Business Association of San Francisco. 

It is but a just tribute to say that himself and family occupy a high social position; 
and in all their relations, ci/ic and fraternal, are notable examples of the ideal 
American citizen. See page 152. 

ly the annual address of the Grand Master of Pennsylvania, delivered on December 
6, 1886, we note the following passage: 

' ' George Washington, first President of the United States, and for many years 
Worshipful Master of a Masonic Lodge in Virginia, while commanding the army of the 
Revolution, observing that profanity was prevalent among the troops, on the third day 
of August, 1776, issued an order in reference thereto, in which he said: 'It is a vice so 
mean and low, without any temptation, that every man of sense and character detests 
and despises it.' "

The celebrated resort known as Litton Springs is three miles above Healdsburg, 
Sonoma, county, and about half a mile from the N. P. railroad. There are two springs 
cf water, known as "California Litton Seltzer," and "Geyser Soda Spring," half a 
mile from each other, situated in a small valley and low undulating hills in a tract of 
land containing 900 acres, 110 of which are set out in orchard, vineyard and ornaanental 
grounds. This property has oaks and evergreen trees in groups at short distances Trom 
each other, and ornamental trees planted where it would seem to improve or add attrac- 
tiveness or beautify this enchanting spot. 

The main building, or Litton Hotel, is an imposing structure facing Grand avenue, 
which leads up from the proposed new railroad station, while a row of ten cottages and 
outbuildings form a semi-circle that has some resemblance to a villa. 

There is a large livery stable, 60x80 feet, with cupola, stocked with a fine string of 
carriage and saddle horses, carryalls, phaetons, buggies and family landaiilets. Close 
to the main building has been erected a neat bath-house, which will be supplied with 
water from the Geyser Soda Springs, about half a mile up the valley, and a steam heater 
put in so that guests can take a mineral bath, hot or cold. In addition a swimming- 
pond is projected on the Russian river, one and one-half miles from this resort. The 
viev; from the main porch looking down Grand avenue (at the end of which will be 
built a fine railroad station) is one of the most picturesque and enchanting on the 
American continent. 

Mr. J. M. Donohue, the owner, has laid his plans to make this naturally attractive 
watering-place the Del Monte of Northern California. 

Climate, accessibility and environments are exceptionally good; and, all things 
considered, this public resort will rival the most noted places in Europe and the United 

Mr. C. R. Mason, formerly manager of the Byron Springs and more recently of the 
Coronado Hotel, San Diego, has taken the management, and with a noted chef and 
caterer, has made the service and table equal, if not superior, to any hotel on the 
Pacific Coast. 

The California Litton Seltzer Water is identical in analysis with the celebrated 
German seltzer, and it is said to be the only one in the United States. Following are 
the component parts : 

Chlorine 78.32 

Sulphuric Acid 2.36

This water is bottled in large quantities and has become a favorite beverage for 

families and public use. Mr. E. L. Lowe, Jr., has the management of the Geyser 

Soda shipped from this spring. 

The accompanying engraving is a good representation of this popular summer 

and winter resort, of which a noted traveler has said : "There is as much comfort and 

satisfaction at Litton Springs as at any place I have ever seen."

On the 26th day of April, 1819, Thomas Wildey, John Welch, John Duncan, 
John Cheatem and Kichard Rushworth, (who were members of the Ms»nchester Unity) 
met at the Seven Starr Inn, Baltimore, Maryland, and founded WaSjhington Lodge 
No. 1, as a subordinate of the Mother Society in England. This feeble beginning has 
grown to proportions that challenge the admirations of the world. In 1842, the 
American membership formally seceded from the Manchester Unity, and declared its- 
self the Independent Order of Odd Fellows throughout the world. At that time there 
were 265 lodges, with 24,000 members; now, at the end of forty-seven years there is, 
1 Sovereign Grand Lodge; 2 Independent Grand Lodges ((ierman Empire and Austral- 
asia); 65 Grand Lodges; 48 Grand Encampments; 8,863 Subordinate Lodges, with 
604,583 members; 2,145 Subordinate Encampments, with 106,200 members; 1691 
Rebekah Degree Lodges, with 80,000 members; 500 Cantons, with 20,000 Chevaliers. 

Totalinitiations since 1830, 1,581,000; deaths, 136,000; total rplief $49,000,000; 
present annual revenue, $5,800,000; present annual payment for relief, $2,500,000; 
Encampment Members 205,0J0; Lodge Members in good standing, 500,000; Annual 
Revenue, $5,700,000; Annual relief $2,300,000; total relief $46,000,000; now in the 
treasury $60,000,000. 

In the galaxy of jurisdictions, none occupy a prouder position than our own 
California; its record from 1852 to date has been one of steady increase, and is the 
seventh jurisdiction of the Order. 

In this State, the benefits are much larger than those paid in the East, and 
aggregate a quarter of a million of dollars annually; and of the entire amount for relief 
paid in the National Jurisdiction, although California has less than one-twentieth of 
the membership of the Order, it pays 7nore than one-tenth. California has 351 lodges 
and 25,300 members. Total Assets .$2,100,000; Relief Fucd $220,000; Revenue 
$470,000 annually. The I. 0. 0. F. is strictly a fraternal and beneficiary Order, and 
the vast sums expended to relieve the sick and distressed are not given as a charity, 
but as a payment of what is due and earned in the days and years that have elapsed 
while they are members.

Music in the Lodge. 

We would be glad to see every Lodge devote a portion of its session to both vocal 
and instrumental music. There is no way in which association is so much harmonized 
as by its magnetic influences. There ii no other influence that is so salutary and sinks 
deeper into the minds of men. How pleasant a meeting seems when melody rings 
through the hall. For the time being all care is driven away, and the bonds of 
brotherhood are more fully drawn. 

"Music," said Congreve, "has charms to soothe the savage breast." Who has not 
read of the poor fiddler on his way to a dance overtaken by a gang of hungry wolves, 
and saved his life by fiddling to them all night. If such be the case, how much more 
will it charm the minds of the intelligent and cultivated. In the home, music has its 
influence, and many are the pleasant hours spent in listening to its delightful strains. 
It tranquillizes the heart, and renders the mind freer from worldly, engrossing pursuits, 
more than any known agency. We sing at our funerals, for plaintive song soothes the 
pains of the mind and brings from the depths of the soul the flower of hope and 
resignation. We sing before passing the hat around at missionary and charity meetings, 
for a stirring air expands the heart.

The Daughters of Rebekah as a Civilizer 

To people of liberal ideas and progressive tendencies the dissipation of the legacy 
of prejudices coming down to us through ages of darkness and ignorance, from an 
ancestry of barbarians, by the civilizing influences of religion and science, is exceed- 
ingly gratifying. And of all these prejudices, the emancipation of woman from the 
degradation and enthrallment to which she has been consigned by the stronger, more 
masterful hand of the male human, and affording her a chance, and if need be, giving 
her a helping hand to rise and stand on the same level as her physically stronger 
brother, is not the least gratifying. 

But it is among the ladies' branches of our beneficent organizations that the woman- 
con temner of a generation ago would find occasion for greatest surprise; for here she 
has found the most potent means for education and enfranchisement. If, remembering 
how the work was done in his Lodge some thirty or forty years ago, he were to find himself 
in one of our Rebekah Degree Lodges some evening, and witness the dignity, grace and 
propriety with which the officers preside over the meetings, and the accuracy with 
which they perform the beautiful ceremonials, he would feel like slinking back in shame 
to think how his predictions concerning her had been unverified. A new generation 
has sprung up, however, which gladly recognizes the ability and co-operation of the 
gentler sex in all the kindly oflBces of life — who see in the loving labors of the Daughters 
of Rebekah a fitting complement to the sterner duties of Odd Fellowship, just as the 
affectionate ministration of wife and daughters round out the completeness of the happy 
family circle.

(Supreme Medical Director of 0. of Gr. S. ) 

Dr. Hartley, the subject of our sketch, was born in Baltimore, Md., in the 
year 1848. He began life for himself, at the early age of seventeen years, by teaching 
school. In 1870 he completed a classical education at Adrian College, Mich., after 
which he entered the Medical Department of the University of ISIichigan, graduating 
therefrom in the year 1873, with honor. 

He is a thorough student and polished gentleman, who has always ranked high in 
his profession He has devoted much of his time to hospital work in New York city, 
with credit to himself and benefit to his patients. 

He has always enjoyed a lucrative practice and has been eminently successful in 
his chosen profession. He located permanently in l^an Francisco in 1883. In 1886 he 
was elected to membership in the San Francisco County Medical Society. The same 
year lie was elected a member of the California State Medical Society. He has been a 
permanent member of the American ]SIedical Association since 1874 and represented 
the State af California as a delegate to the ninth International Medical Congress which 
met in Washington, D. C, September 5, 1887. 

He is prominent in the Masons, Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias. The Eastern 
Star and Reliekahs claim him as a co-laborer. In Odtl Fellowship he has held high 
places of honor and trust. He is Surgeon to the Second Regiment of the Uniform 
Rank, I. O. O. F., with the rank of Major. He has lield various offices in the Knights 
of Pythias and is Surgeon of the First California Regiment U. R. K. of P., with tlie 
rank of Major. He is the Supreme Medical Director of the Order of the Golden Shire 
and is one of its Directors. 


With the march of science civilized man is almost daily subjected to some new 
and hitherto unknown danger; and what with ready-made lightning running in con- 
tinuous streams through our public streets for purposes of illumination and as a motor 
for street-cars and machinery, the time is coming when the thunder-storm will have 
small room in which to opei-ate, inasmuch as those who might otherwise have become 
its victims will have long ago been sent to the happy hunting-ground by artificial 
lightning. The electric-light wires, insulated as they are, are not free from danger to 
human life; but when one looks upon the naked wires which run through the crowded 
thoroughfares of many of our cities, one is struck with the awful possibilities which 
are contained in those wires, even it he be not struck, in very fact, by the subtle 
current itself. 

But, what is one to do ? In this enterprising era, where men will run all risks to 
save a few seconds of time, or to secure a few grains of comfor'*, and where men with 
money are all-powerful in securing whatever they may desire, it is idle to attempt to 
stay the advancing tide. With each day will come some new danger; and all that the 
individual can do is to provide for himself and family in fraternal and beneficiary 
organizations, and leave the rest to luck.

Human Angels and Devils. 

The New York Herald says there are human angels and human devils. A very fair 
assortment of both has been found in Jacksonville, Fla. , during the rage of the pestilence. 
Noble men and women oflfered their services as physicians and nurses. Animated by 
the fraternal spirit, they took the risks of the epidemic, suffered the discomforts of 
hospitals and pest-houses, to be the means of helping suflfering humanity. All the 
fraternal Orders acted nobly. Money, medicines, and needed delicacies were liberally 
sent to the brothers in need. This is one side of the picture. Now turn to the other. 
In that fever-stricken city there were swarms of human vampires, cold blooded villains 
whose native air is a place rarely mentioned only by preachers and toughs. They forged 
or altered physicians' certificates, and were thereby enabled to procure the delicacies 
intended for the sick, such as canned meats, champagne, and the carefully prepared 
foods that help the convalescent to escape from the last vestige of the disease. The 
physicians early took measures against this kind of fraud and soon reduced it to a 
minimum ; but such things are an awful comment on the depravity of some forms of 
human nature. The charities of the fraternal Orders had no such troubles, as they 
were sent by brothers in the North to the care of brothers in the South, instead of to 
hastily extemporized committees.

la the settlement of the Northwestern Territory, at the close of the American 
Revolution, which included the States of Kentucky and Tennessee, there was developed 
a distinctive feature in American character that has given the heroes of that time a 
national reputation. The subject of our sketch was the son of an honored pioneer, 
John Carr, who was a prominent member of the Methodist Church for 66 years, and 
was an important factor in establishing the moral and religious sentiment of that 
community. The history of Mr. Carr has been one of adventure ; and the push, 
indomitable perseverance, bravery and generosity exhibited in his successful and 
romantic career form a chapter for character study, and are typical of his honored 
and distinctive American ancestry. He was born in Tennessee, June 10, 1814, andnowat 
the age of 75 years has a vim in his eye and an elasticity in his step that presage many 
years in the active duties of life as a promoter and counsellor in great business 
enterprises and official civic duties. His boyhood and early youth were spent on a 
farm, his limited opportunities of education being availed of during the intervals of 
farm labor. At IG years of age he commenced the great battle of life he has fought so 
well as a clerk in a store in Cairo, which business he continued until his 23d year, 
when betook to himself a wife and with §1,000, which he had saved, removed to 
Memphis, and with a former employer, Larkin Wood, went into commercial 
business. Business failures involved the firm with an indebtedness of $20,000. 
Within two years they paid ofif this debt and during the next three years they wound 
up their busines j and Mr. Carr opened a general commission and brokerage business 
at New Orleans, with a capital of $40,000. Business reverses overtook him again, and 
to retrieve his losses he entered into the business of a sutler during the Mexican war. 
The train conveying his goods was captured and his outfit confiscated. But this 
misfortune to Mr. Carr was good fortune to our army and, as Gen. Taylor afterward.s 
acknowledged, saved the day at the battle of Buena Vista. With that tenacity that 
is characteristic of him he stayed with the army until the close of the war and 
returned to New Orleans with §15,000. He went to Washington and from there 
embarked for California, arriving in San Francisco in August, 1849, and immediately 
assumed the duties as Collector of the Port, He was elected to the first California 
Legislature and was one of the most influential members of that noted body. 

Mr. Carr has been a miner, rancher, stock-raiser (some of the best strains of 
blood having been imported into this State by him) mail contractor and banker. He 
served two years as President of the State Board of Agriculture and is now and has been 
for many years President of the Monterey District Agricultural Association. He 
organized the Salinas Bank and has been continuously President. At the earnest 
solicitation of his first wife (he having been married twice) he joined the I. O. 0. F. 
and is now a member of Alisal Lodge, No. 163, Salinas city, and though he 
never sought official honors, he has endowed the Odd Fellows' Library of this place 
with the munificent gift of $5,000, and the Pacific Methodist College of Santa Rosa, 
Sonoma county, of which he is one of the Trustees, with $.'>,000 also. 

He is a man of but few words, frank, outspoken and positive. The cares and 
trials of an e /entful life have not lessened his activity and it should be our pride as a 
nation that we have developed a distinctive national character and the venerable 
subject of this sketch is a fit representative of the brave and restleis American pioneer.

There are but few men who have done better service for humanity than Wm. H. 
Barnes, orator, humorist, poet, and lecturer. On his twenty-first birthday, September 
22, 1SS5, he was initiated in Sylvan Lodge, No. 4, I. 0. O. F. For thirty -four years 
his voice and pen have been always ready to aid and assist suffering humanity and 
build up fraternal societies. He has been connected with the fraternal press for twenty 
years, and edited several publications. His writings are chaste, pointed and enter- 
taining; as a speaker, brilliant, witty and eloquent. His versatility of talent is quite 
remarkable, and it is his pleasure and pride to use his elocutionary, musical and imita- 
tive powers for the benefit of the distressed, Sunday Schools, Relief Associations, 
Temperance and Fraternal Societies. He is a Past Grand Master and Past Grand 
Patriarch in I. O. O. F., and has served as Representative to G. L. U. S. He is Past 
Grand Dictator and served as Supreme Representative, K. of H. In the Ancient 
Order of United Workmen he has made a record of having more increase of membership 
than any other administration. He served two terms as G. M. W., and has been 
elected Supreme Representative for four sessions. Brother Barnes is genial, and can 
easily adapt himself to his audience for a jovial time, or discuss great questions of policy 
or law. It is undoubtedly true, as has been said by a contemporary, "He has delivered 
more public addresses for charitable objects and fraternal societies than any man in the 
United States." See page 167. 


Men who are by nature sympathetic and benevolent find in these fraternal and 
beneficiary orders a field for labor that is suited to their taste, and in this service they 
find their real enjoyment. As a rule, their faithful service begets leadership, and, like 
the faithful pilot, they stand at the helm until loving hands carry them to their grave. 
Brother Sewell has been a leader in fraternal society affairs for many years, and each 
year seems to add to his responsibilities and a demand for his services as an adviser and 
co-worker. He emigrated from England at the age of eleven years, and in the prime 
of manhood came to California in 1859, settling in Sonora, where he followed his occu- 
pation as carpenter and contractor for fifteen years. During his residence in Sonora 
he took a deep interest in the fire department. Six times Mr. Sewell was elected Sec- 
retary of Hose Company No. 1; once Treasurer of the same; twice appointed Secre- 
tary of Board of Fire Delegates; three times elected one of the five Trustees of the city of 
Sonora; five times elected First Assistant Engineer of the Sonora Fire Department; 
and four times Chief Engineer of the same. His fidelity is shown in this connection, 
that "for fifteen years he was never absent from his post in times of danger." 

He is a veteran Odd Fellow, and during the year 1886 served with distinction as 
President of the Veteran Odd Fellows' Association for the Pacific Coast. In 1876 and 
1879 he was a Representative in the Grand Lodge of California. He became a member 
of Bald Mountain Encampment, and filled various official positions, and resigned the 
office of Scribe when ho removed to San Francisco. 

He joined Triumph Lodge, ISO, A. 0. U. W., in 1881; served in several official 
positions, among which were M. W.; six terms as Financier, and District Deputy 
Grand Master in 1887. He did signal service as a member of Samaritan Council, No. 
13, 0. C. F., in the great secession movement in that Order, and was created a Past 
Councillor by the Supreme Lodge. 

At the last general election he was a candidate for School Trustee, and has served 
in civic official positions at difl'erent times during a term of years. He is a man of 
sterling worth, indomitable perseverance and strict integrity. Benevolent, frank and 
faithful to every trust, he has endeared himself to a large circle of warm friends and 
fraters. He heis a State notoriety as a fine artist and skillful photographer.

The name of Christopher Green has been prominently before the people of this 
State for thirty-seven years, associated with our leading men in promoting the growth 
and development of the capital city of Sacramento since 1852. He was born in Ireland in 
1830, landed in New York city, in 1844, a lad of 14 years, and commenced bis career as 
a butcher, which occupation he has followed until the present time in connection with 
raising stock on his extensive ranches in Arizona. He was appointed Director of the 
California State Agricultural Society sixteen years ago, and has continuously occupied 
this position, and is now their president. His sound judgment, executive ability and 
admirable tact have given him great influence in the afl'aira of this Society, and he is 
credited with being one of the chief promoters in building up and placing it in the 
prosperous condition it occupies. He served as Mayor of Sacramento for six yean, and 
his administration was among the best in the history of that city. During all these 
years he has taken an active part in political affairs and has been one of the leaders of 
his party, serving as Chairman of the Convention and one of the members of the State 
Central Committee. Under President Arthur's administration he was Postmaster of 
Sacramento. His marital relations have been blessed, and he has a most estimable 
family, consisting of a wife and six children. In fraternal society life he has taken a 
great deal of interest in the I. O. 0. F., and has filled every official station in the Sub- 
ordinate Lodge, and been a member of Eldorado Lodge, No. 8, for 32 years. 

We make the following extract, published by the Pacific Rural Press: "The face 
of Christopher Green will appear a familiar one to many readers of the Rural. He has 
been a staunch friend and promoter of the State Agricultiiral Society since the earliest 
times, and for the last sixteen years has been a member of the Board of Directors, and 
is now the president of the organization. Mr. Green is still young, as he is under CO. 
and he is younger in vigor and spirit than he is in years. He has been a resident of 
California since 1852, and has held many important positions. Two terms, or six years, 
he was Mayor of the capital city of Sacramento, and he served three years as Post- 
master of the city. Since 1859 he has been engaged in the livestock industry, both as 
a grower and as a purveyor of cattle products. He is a man of great cordiality and 
affability, and has a wide circle of friends. During his incumbency of the presidency of 
the State Society ho may be trusted to use his utmost eflforts for the success of its 


How many of the vast army of our noble brothers who belong to the various fraternal 
societies ever thought of running a parallel between the solar system and the benign 
principle of fraternity? In the solar system we have the primary source of heat and 
light at the center, daily giving life, warmth and vitality alike to all. It is no respecter 
of persons. Its beams touch with beauty the glittering pinnacles of wealth, and creep 
into cabin windows and dance on the floor where poor children play. It pours forth its 
vivifying power without stint or measure. There is more than enough for all, and no 
monopoly can capture its ijotency and splendor and put a price upon i(3 benefits. It is 
also the center of attractive force, and all planets swing their lights around it. 

In like manner our fraternal system is the essential embodiment of all that is grand 
and beautiful in the benellcent element of human nature. From this center flows the 
principle of fraternal feeling, that in the shape of love, sympathy, friendship and charity 
alike to all who may come within the range of its munificent embrace. It specially 
recognizes no one on account of station, influence or the color of the bark on his family 
tree. All come in at the same door, travel the same road, stand around a common altar, 
and are buried by the same ritual ceremonies. All are recognized as the children of 
God, possessing a common origin, bound to a common destiny. 

Then it embodies the principle, that in various degrees orbs all other fraternal 
movements into a system. They all reflect the same light, and are aiming to achieve 
the same kindly purposes and blessings. Time would fail to tell how many a weary 
mind has been inspired, how many a heart has been sustained and gladdened in the hour 
of sickness and distress, how many a desolate home has been brightened by gentle fra- 
ternal ministries. May prosperity crown our noble Orders, for they come as a shape 
of religion, that, clad in no particular creed, speaking no special language, appeals to 
all hearts. Did not tlie Master say that whosoever gave a cup of water to one of 
the least of these, his brothers, gave it to Him. 

President State Agricultural Society of California 



The subject of this sketch has been prominently before the public for the last 
eighteen years as an undertaker, and one of the leading fraternal Society men of this 
State. He was born in Cornwall, England, in 1845, and commenced his career in life 
unaided, and relying on his own resources. He emigrated to California in 1875 and 
commenced business at Stockton as an undertaker, this being his occupation, and irt 
which he had been thoroughly educated. He remained in Stockton twelve years, when 
he sold out to good advantage and opened a fine undertaking establishment at Los 
Angeles. At the end of two years his large patronage and business was purchased at a 
high price, and in April of this year he rented the whole building at 1021 Market 
street, San Francisco, with a view of making one of the largest and most complete 
undertaking establishments west of the Rocky Mountains. As a manager and funeral 
director he has been very popular, and his large experience and tact enable him' tO' 
attend to the obsequies and funerals in a most efficient manner. He first became a. 
member of Stockton Lodge, No. 11,1. 0. O. F. in 1877, went through all the chairs, 
having been elected to office on the first meeting night after taking the degrees. He 
joined Parker Encampment, No. 3, Stockton, and filled every station, and as an auxil- 
iary to membership in Rebekah Degree Lodge in Stockton. In 1880 he became a mem- 
ber of San Joaquin Lodge, No. 19, F. and A. M., at Stockton; Centennial Lodge, No. 38, 
Knights of Pythias in 18S1, andfilledevery chair in this Order. About this time he joined 
Court Yosemite Foresters, Champions of the Red Cross, and passed through all the 
official stations in each Order. He is a member of Stockton Lodge, No. 31, A. O. U. W., 
American Legion of Honor and Knights of Honor, having filled every chair in this 
Order. During his career as an officer he has during a long period filled continuously 
one official position in three separate orgmizations at the same time. It is a matter of 
record that Bro. Richards has held a larger number of official positions in fraternal 
organizations during the time he has been a member than any one in this State. 

He It genial, benevolent, frank, and has faith in his fellow-men. He is a vigorous 
and strictly temperate man, possessing an even and unruffled temper, courteous in his 
demeanor, the friend of the poor and needy — ever ready to do good to his fellow-man. 
In his conversation he is pleasing, agreeable, frank and candid — in fine, he is one of 
aature's true noblemen. 

Temperance, dignity, charity and courtesy, based upon intelligence, derived from 
education, are essential to prepare a man to become a valuable member of our Order. 
The opposites of these cardinal virtues are; Drunkenness, levity, selfishness and boor- 
ishness, Ijased i;pon ignorance, or an utter lack of good manners — an educated man may 
lack every virtue envimerated above. To win in the contest for the elevation of the 
human race, Odd Fellowship must be govrned by the former principles and be a sturdy 
foe to their antagonists. Ignorance is a deadly enemy to human progress. Our Order 
is loyal to progress, or else it is a failure, which no thinking Odd Fellow will for a 
moment admit. Let iis, my brethren, do all in our power to eilucate the world so that 
it can come up to the plane of our Order. When that goal is reached then will be 
u.shered in that golden age for which all good men in every decade have prayed "and 
died without the sight" — a universal fraternity in the family of man. 

The fraternal Orders are a national, blessing. They promote thrift, economy 
and sobriety without freezing the soul into selfishness, as is apt to be the case in 
the usual struggle for wealth or high social position. They bring men into closer 
social relations and cherish those feelings that thrive and put forth blossoms in each 
other's welfare. They make men thoughtful and helpful, expanding the sentiments 
of love, charity, and good-will. They teach us the religion that breaks bread to the 
hungry, gives a cup of water to the thirsty, watches at the bed of the sick, visits 
the imprisoned, the fatherless and widows, duties that are sadly neglected, and for a 
long time were supposed to be confined to the church.

EX-PKESIDEXT K. B. HAYES We shall always remember our v-isit to Monterey as 

one of the most agreeable episodes of our lives. We shall never forget that lovely hotel among the 
trees and flowers ; and the climate — it was a perfect summer's day on the verge of winter. 

GENERAL W. T. SHERMAN I consider Monterey, with its "Hotel del Monte," the 

most delightful place I have ever visited. 

THE PRINCESS LOUISE (to the Manager of the Hotel del Monte)— You have the most 
beautiful place, and the cleanest and the best kept hotel that I have ever \nsited in my travel-s. 
(LORD LORNE also expressed himself in about the same terms, and said that he was greatly 
pleased with his \-isit to Monterey.) 

JOHN \\. DIACKAY.— There is nothing in Europe that can at all compare with it. 

LAWRENCE BARKETT — I have just returned from Paris— cracked up, you know, for 
the excellency of its coflTee; but I have never in life tasted such delicious coflfee. or had such an 
inviting early breakfast, as I got while at the " Hotel del Monte." 

EDWIN BOOTH.— This is the brightest, cleanest and prettiest place I have ever .seen. 
Nothing can compare with it. 

JOSEPH PULITZER, editor and proprietor .V. }'. ;^orW.—The charms of the hotel and 
climate at Monterey have not been exaggerated— they cannot be. Del Monte has no equal. 

HON. BEN WOOD, editor and proprietor A''. >'. A>zf.f.—I should never have believed that 
such a beautiful place existed, had I not come out and seen for myself. 

THE MARQUIS OF QUEENSBURY.— There is no place in the world so beautiful and 
attractive as the Hotel del Monte and its gardens and its seventeen-mile drive. Nature and art 
have done the best they could together. 

WON CA.MERON — I got great relief while in California. Its winter climate is lovely and 
spicy and healing. California abounds in charms and surprises; and its greatest, and the one we 
shall remember the longest, is the Hotel del Monte at Monterey. 

The Late GENERAL GEO. B. McCLELLAN.— I shall never cease to think of the 
beauties of the Hotel del Monte and its lovely grounds. 

-HRS. JAMES BROWN POTTER — I have never been so fascinated with a place as with 
Del JConte, and my only regret is that I could not have stayed longer. I shall never forget any ot 
Its beauties or other attractions— the hotel itself, the grounds, the flowers, the lawns, the trees, the 
seventeen-mile drive, and the delicious warm salt-water baths at the pa\-ilion. Who ever could 
forget such a fairy spot? 

DR. C. B. CURRIER, IN N. Y. MEDICAL TIMES.— As a winter resort it is simply 
incomparalJle. * * Its " Hotel del Monte " is not excelled, if equaled, in regard to mag- 
nihcence, elegance and comfort, by any hotel in Europe or America. 

iir ."■• K. HOBART, EDITOR RAILWAY AGE.-It is well called the "Queen of American 
watering Places. In beauty of surroundings, elegance of finish and appointment, and complete- 
ness ot architectural effect, the Del Monte, as a resort for health and pleasure, is unequaled ou 
the continent. ^

Founder of the A. O. U. W., Oct. 27, 1868 



There is uo beneficiary order in the United States that has had so substantial and 
rapid a growth as the Ancient Order of United Workmen. The founder, J. J. Upchurch, 
and associates were poor men and the most of them mechanics. They sought to establish 
a co-operative society, or order that would bring employer and employee in closer 
and more cordial relations. The foundation of their beneficiary system was laid by a 
solemn compact made with each other by an agreement to give the proceeds of one day's 
labor to a deceased member's widow. The first beneficiary received less than S300. 
This feature was changed by a more equitable policy, that each member should jiay the 
sum of $1. at the death of each member. 

It provided that all \vliite male persons over 21 and under 50 years of age were 
eligible to membership except lawyers and persons engaged in selling spirit and malt 
liquors. It is the largest beneficiary, as it was the first established that had fraternal 
relations with an organized system of charity. There are now over 210,000 members 
in the United States and province of Quebec, and over 18,000 in this jurisdiction, the 
State of California. A significant feature of this Order is its cosmopolitan character, 
and a membership recruited largely from the old fraternal Orders. This Order has been in 
existence for 20 years, with an average death rate that has cost the persons holding bene- 
ficiary certificates nine dollars on each one thousand dollars; $2,000 being the amount 
that each person is allowed to take. Their system of government is fashioned after our 
own civil government to the extent of having separate jurisdictions, that pay out the 
money collected by assessments to the beneficiaries. Each jurisdiction by schedule has 
a fixed death rate. Shoiild the maximum be reached, all death losses over that are paid 
by assessments levied by the Supreme Lodge, each separate jurisdiction paying their 
quota. It is optional with each Subordinate Lodge to pay "sick benefits," about one- 
third of the Lodges of this State having adopted that policy. There is an auxiliary 
known as the Degree of Honor to which the wives, daughters and mothers of workmen 
are admitted. It is social in character, and has not extended to any great extent outside 
the large cities. Since this humane Order was established over 20 years millions of 
dollars have been paid to the widows and orphans of deceased members, and no obliga- 
tion or demand against the Ancient Order of United Workmen remains unpaid.

There are but few men who have been more instrumental in shaping and directing 
the fraternal society affairs of this State than the subject of this sketch, the young 
leader of the Pacific coast. 

The marvelous and unprecedented growth of the Ancient Order of United Work- 
men in California is largely due to the efforts of the first Grand Master, Wm. H. 
Jord'.m. At the formation of the Grand Lodge there were less than 500 members. 
During his two terms in office the membership had increased to over 10,000 and a sep- 
arate jurisdiction. He was then a young man, and his great benevolent heart was so 
ardently enlisted that he gave a large portion of his time in organizing lodges. 

Brother Jordan was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, September 3, 1849. He arrived in 
this State in 1859, after enduring numerous hardships in the journey across the plains. 
The ensuing seven years of his life were a varied experience of trial and toil, but he 
managed to find ways and means of fitting himself for and working his way through 

During the last eleven years he has attended every session of the Supreme Lodge 
A. 0. U. W. as a representative or as an officer of that body. As an index of his phi- 
lanthropic and sagacious management as Grand Master Workman, when the call for 
help came from the yellow fever sufferers of Nashville, he telegraphed $500 on his own 
responsibility, which was duly approved by the Grand Lodge of California. But more 
complete was this great act of benevolence when, on appeal from Brother Jordan as 
G. M. W. each Workman in this jurisdiction paid the sum of $2.50 voluntarily with- 
out levying an assessment, to aid the widows and orphans of Tennessee. 

He is also a member of F. and A. M. and a number of benevolent orders. At the 
last session of the Legislature he was elected Speaker of the Assembly, a position he 
filled with great credit. As a lawyer, statesman, and fraternal leader he has acquitted 
himself with signal ability. His name will go into history as an organizer, philanthro- 
pist and benaf actor. 


The objects of this society are to properly care for, and give pecuniary aid to, 
members when sick and unable to attend to their duties. 

This society was started sixteen years ago by Mrs. Lizzie K. Burke and a few 
other teachei's in San Francisco, to which place the membership is limited. 

The number of members is 210, and on the payment of 50 cents monthly each 
member is entitled to .$10 per week in case of sickness, and $75 should death occur. 

The entrance fee was originally $2.50, but has been gradually raised to $10, as a 
protection to older members. 

About one-third of the San Francisco teachers are members of this well-conceived 
and well-conducted organization. It is the oldest one of its kind in the United States, 
and would serve as an excellent model for similar societies in sister States.

Past Supreme Master Workman 



The fraternal and beneficiary societies of our country have selected men of high 
intellectual moral worth and great executive ability to manage their affairs. The 
subject of our sketch has been prominently associated as a leader and counselor for a 
quarter of a century. He is a native of New York and a direct descendant of the 
family of Young who were granted large tracts of land in western New York for service 
to their country, a portion of which is still held in their name. He is a member of 
Union Lodge, No. 2], A. O. U. W., and during all these years he has given a large 
amount of time and labor for this Order. At the last session of the Grand Lodge he 
was elected by acclamation Grand Master Workman. He has had a large experience 
in fraternal society life, and is well versed in the law and usages of all the leading 
benevolent Orders. 

All of the civic and ofiicial positions to which he has been elected he has filled with 
honor to himself and satisfaction to his associates. He was a member of the Assembly 
from Sacramento county for several terms, and Grand Orator of the Grand Lodge, 
F. and A. M., in 1886. He is a member of the Knights Templar, Order of Eastern Star 
and served one year as Grand Patron. 

His highly gifted and estimable wife, who holds a license to practice as an attorney 
at law, served one year as Grand Matron of the order of Eastern Star. Since Brother 
Young has assumed the duties of Grand Master Workman, by his masterly tact and 
executive ability there has been given an impetus that promises to make his administra- 
tion one of the most notable in the history of this great order since its introduction; 
into this State. He has high scholastic attainments, is a close student, and has a 
reputation as a clear-headed and successful lawyer. He is in the prime of life, having 
large experience in Society affairs, and is one of our honored, esteemed, and trusted 
leadcs See page 199. 


The history of the Ancient Order of United Workmen in this jurisdiction is but a 
record of the career of "Father Pratt," the founder of the Order on this coast. He 
instituted the first lodge, California, No. 1, was elected Grand Recorder at the institution 
of the Grand Lodge, and has held this office continuously for 12 years. During that 
time hundreds of thousands of dollars have passed through his hands without a ten cent 
deficit. He is a man of studious habits, well versed in Society usage, and his decisions 
and interpretation of the law in our Order have almost become stare decisis. As Grand 
Recorder and Supreme Representative he has rendered most faithful and intelligent 
service, and the high appreciation he is held in by Workmen on this coast is but a just 
tribute to the honest and sagacious management of his official department. He needs 
no chiseled monument to perpetuate his name as a great benefactor. See page 195. 


Dr. Fish has the reputation of being one of the best educated and most eminent 
physicians of the Pacific Coast. He has devoted a goodly portion of his life to scientifia 
research and fraternal societies, and on his resignation as Surgeon General in the United 
States Service, he was appointed Professor of Physiology and Histology of the 
University of California. He is a member of all the leading fraternal and beneficiary 
societies, and has served more years in office (commencing to help form the Grand 
Lodge A. 0. U. W., of this State, at Kohler's Hall, West Oakland, November 13, 1877) 
than any man on the Pacific Coast. As a citizen and frater he is known in all portions 
of this Union, and his position as Medical Inspector of an Ai-my Corps during the war 
and services as Supreme Master Workman have given him a national reputation. His 
scientific papers and official reports as an executive officer are models of perspicuity and 
research. His life has been a useful one, and his name will pass into history as a scholar 
and humanitarian.

Past Supreme Master Workman 



The life of Father Upchurch is an example of what a poor mechanic can do for 
humanity. He was a philanthropist, and the subject of benefiting his race had been hia 
study for years. In his autobiography he says: " Nothing seemed to present itself so 
forcibly as a society where the employer and employee could be brought face to face, 
and obligate them to the same great principle of the greatest good to the greatest num- 
ber.'" He opened the first temperance hotel south of Mason and Dixon's line, and it 
was a failure. He planted a twig in Meadville, Penn., audit has grown from twenty 
members in nine months from organization to 20,000 members in less than twenty 
years. His whole purpose in life was to benefit his fellow-man, and although he was a 
poor man, slow of speech and simple-minded, his name is enshrined in the hearts of a 
grateful people, and he will be known as one of the great benefactors of this age. He 
was made a Past Supreme Master Workman by the Supreme Lodge; was a membcj. 
of the Select Knights, and also of the Masonic fraternity. The inscription that will be 
placed on a monument that will be erected by the grand army of Workmen will be, 
"Foanderof the Ancient Order of United Workmen." See page 180. 


It i.<" a subject of much gratification to know that the men of highest intellectuality 
moral worth and prominent social position have been enlisted as active supporters of 
our great con-fraternal societies. The subject of this sketch has given a great deal of 
efiicient labor and valuable time in fraternal societies. He has a noted ancestry. The 
Logan family who settled in Virginia and Pennylvania over 200 years ago were politica-, 
refugees from Ireland, and were \ns paternal ancestors. His mother is a sister of F. M 
Cockrell, U. S. Senator from Missouri. He came near being a Native Son, he being 
but four years of age when he landed in California. His collegiate education was 
obtained at the Pacific Methodist College at Vacaville and the Santa Clara College at 
Santa Clara. In 1870 he commenced the study of law with Governor Haight and the 
late Chief Justice Temple, and after reading law two years was compelled to desist on 
account of disability of his eyes. He afterwards attended the law school at Harvard 
University. He was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court in 1878, located at 
Ukiah, and moved to San Francisco in 1886. As an attorney-at-law he ranks with the 
leading members of the bar, and has a lucrative practice. He is a member of the 
F. and A. M., and also of the I.'O. 0. F., passed through the chairs, and has been elected 
Grand Representative. In the K. of H. he holds the title of Past Dictator, and has 
been very prominent with the A. O. U. W. He was elected Grand Overseer in 1881 
Grand Foreman in 1882, and Grand Master Workman in 1883, and Representative to 
the Supreme Lodge in 1888. He is a forcible speaker, logical debater, has a fine 
address, and his administration was a very successful one. His characteristics are 
strict integrity, open, honest dealing, with a purpose of following principle rather than 
policy. He is married to Miss S. C. Hunt, a beautiful and accomplished lady, and this 
happy union has been blessed with two boys. See page 197.

The frontiersmen of our country, and the pioneers of the Pacific Coast, will ever be 
revered, honored and held in grateful remembrance. In this respect Frederick 
Adams, or, as he was known among the Indian tribes, " Red Top," is justly entitled to 
be placed on the roll as a noted scout, Indian fighter, frontiersman and California pio- 
neer. Circumstances and association deprived him of the advantages of an early edu- 
cation, yet, by hard stud}' and close application, he has achieved some notoriety as a 
literary writer and gained a good reputation in his profession. 

Although he has led an adventurous life, and been actively engaged in civil and mili- 
tary duty in settling new Territories and States, he has found time to attend to our 
leading fraternal and beneficiary Orders, and seems to find in these organizations a 
field suited to his philanthropic nature. He was a charter member of Olive Lodge, 
A. O. U. W. , served as Master Workman for three years, Chairman on Good of th« 
Order in the Grand Lodge, and continuously from that time on Committee on Appeals 
and Grievances up to the time he was selected Grand Overseer in 1888 and Grand Fore- 
man in 1889. 

He joined the Odd Fellows in 1862, and in 1864, and has passed the 
chairs in each organization. He served as Worshipful Master in King David's Lodge, 
Santa Cruz, for three years, and is a member of the Chapter. 

His life has been one of usefulness, adventure and romance. At the age of 13 h» 
left his father's home at St. Louis, enlisted as a drummer -boy in the U. S. Army, and 
started for Mexico. He was transferred to the Second Texas Rangers, under Colonel 
Albert Sidney Johnston, and was discharged at Fort Bliss, Texas, in 1847. During th» 
next six months he carried the military mail from Fort Bliss to Albuqueique, N M.,' 
encountering dangers and miraculous escapes incident to frontier life. 

On December 25, 1849, he first set foot in California, and was in turn miner, mer- 
chant, stock-raiser, until 1859, when he commenced reading law, and was admitted to 
the bar. He has served as Deputy Sherifi", U. S. Marshal, County Treasurer, County 
Judge, and several minor official positions. Ho was captain in several expeditions 
against the Snake Indians in Eastern Oregon, served in the Modoc war in 1856, and as 
a scout for eight months in the Rogue River war, 1855. 

During our civil war his position as a U. S. Marshal gave him great power and 
grave responsibilities. While acting in this capacity he showed great executive ability 
and tact, and his official acts met with the highest approval by the heads of the Gov- 

He is of Scotch descent, and his characteristics — bravery, independence and 
patriotism — are an inheritance from a noted ancestry. Through a career of privation 
and hardships on the frontier, or in the heyday of life with wealth and civic honors, 
his benevolent nature has always drawn him to fraternal societies, and he finds his 
best enjoyment in advancing and promoting them. See page 205. 

Our noble Order brings us together once a week with friendly feeling and protects 
us in many ways, gives relief in the hour of need to the widow and fatherless children, 
where, without it, poverty would leave its sting with the living and dying. For what 
man can die in peace and know that his wife and helpless babes are left at the world's 
cruel mercy, with no one to depend on but themselves ? 

When a man belongs to our Order he not only gains friends for himself and family, 
but a life insurance as well. When a brother is stricken down in our midst it is not 
only our duty, but our pleasure also, to look after and befriend his bereaved ones. We 
have but to look around us and note many cases where mothers with large families 
would have been left destitute and without a friend but for our beloved Order, which 
not only looks after a brother in his illness, but, when necessary, keeps him in good 
standing in his Lodge if he is out of employment. 

Our Order is not particular as to who becomes members, so long as they are upright 
and honest, for in the Lodgeroom nationality and religion are cast aside and we becom© 
one family. The same God watches over one and all, the same country yields our liveli- 
hood, and in the end we are all striving to attain the same place.

Grand Master Workman of California 




Men who are benevolent and sympathetic are the leaders and workers in fraternal 
societies. Such are the characteristics of Brother Brewer. During a busy life 
he has given a great deal of time, labor and money in promoting benevolent orders. 
He is emphatically a humanitarian and Society man. At the Institution of Union 21, 
A. 0. U. W., he was the first P. M. W.; Grand Foreman in 1879; Grand Master and 
Supreme Representative in 1880, and is at present Chairman of the Finance Committee 
of tlie Supreme Lodge. He has been a member of Abou Ben Adhem Lodge, I. 0. O. F., 
for twenty years, member of the Knights of Pythias, Red Men and several other promi- 
nent and popular benevolent societies and humane organizations. He is a good speaker 
and debator, generous, kind-hearted, and seems never so happy as when he is helping 
the distressed, visiting the sick, and alleviating the sufferings of his fellow-men. Provi- 
dence has fashioned liim in a generous mould, and whether in prosperity or adversity 
he is always ready to lend a helping hand to gladden saddened heart-s.

DUNCAN Mcpherson 

The life of Duncan McPherson is a striking example of patient toil, indomitable 
perserverance and signal success. Commencing at the lowest rung, he has steadily 
advanced, and is now principal owner and editor of the daily and weekly Sentinel, pub- 
lished at Santa Cruz. A3 a publisher he has gained a reputation of being one of the 
best writers and a leading journalist of the Pacific Coast. He has taken a deep interest 
m fraternal and beneticiai-y societies, and has given his best efforts to promote 
tliem. His speeches are instructive, and fortified by fact? and statistics that have given 
him the name of being a "Walking Encyclopedia." 

He filled the office of Grand Overseer, Grand Foreman, Grand Master vVorkman, 
and Representative to the Supreme Lodge with signal ability. He is a leading member 
of the Knights of Honor, Knights of Pythias, and Independent Order of Odd Fellows. 

Bro. McPherson is a man of deep convictions, unswerving in a course of action that 
he deems for the best interests of the community, and fearless in the discharge of his 
duty as a journalist.

The citizens of the New England States have left the impress of their char- 
acter, enterprise and indomitable perseverance on the various institutions of our country. 
The subject of this sketch is a good representative of the active, pushy, restless New 
Englander. He has arisen from the lowly walks in life by his own exertions to a 
position of honor, wealth and leadership politically and in the fraternal societies. He 
was born in Massachusetts and commenced his business career at the age of 12 years as 
a grocer's boy. His career in California has been one of varied fortune and ultimate 
crowning success. 

He was elected Supervisor for the city and county of San Francisco, and during his- 
term of office projects for the improvement of this city were inaugurated and established 
with sagacity and in such a manner that commanded universal approbation. He has- 
always taken a deep interest in fraternal societies, and served with much credit as Most 
Worshipful Master in the F. and A. M. He is a Past Dictator in the Knights of Honor 
and a member in a large number of the leading beneficiary orders. In the A. 0. U. W. 
he has taken an active part, and during his incumbency as Grand Master Workman, 
devoted almost all his term of office to visiting lodges and delivering public addresses. 
It was largely through his efforts that the A. .U. W. was given an impetus in the New 
England States during the last few years. He is a man of indomitable energy, positive 
nature and will not countenance any deviation from society usage, or admit of any com- 
promise with wrong. Mr. Danforth occupies a prominent position socially, politically 
and in fraternal societies affairs, and it seems to be the greatest desire of his heart to pro- 
mote and advance these great humanitarian organizations. In his marital relations 
he is highly connected, his family consisting of a most estimable wife, lovely daughter 
and son, Mr. E. P. Danforth, who, although quite a young man has been appointed Naval 
OflBcer of the Port of San Francisco.

haviufiT been constructed for the accommodation of over 200 patients, and they are pleasantly sit- 
uated in the suburbs of Stockton, and surrounded by attractive ground,-, of forty acres in extent, 
with oiltivated gardens and pleasant walks. Its advantages over public institutions, in facility 
of admission and procuring extra accommodation, if required, are obvious.

The avocation and profession of men in California have been taken up and followed 
in a marked degree, without any regard to their early education or original intention 
in their youthful days. Such has been characteristic of the career of the subject of this 
sketch. He waj born in New Bedford, Mass., in 1S30, and, like many, imbibed a 
strong desire to become a sailor. After a thorough education in the public schools, at 
the age of fifteen years, in 1845, he shipped on board the Adeline Gihbs on a whaling 
voyage in the North Pacific Ocean, a cruise that lasted three years. The voyage was a 
successful one, and the good ship returned well laden with stores that brought wealth 
to the ci'ew. Mr. Taber had gained a ripe experience for a young man of eighteen years, 
and was ready for adventure. Within one year he took passage for San Francisco, c rviving 
in February, 1850. His next voyage was to Valparaiso and Marquise Islanus on a 
trading expedition. In one of his trading cruises, a small distance inland in one of the 
South Sea Islands, their boat's crew were intercepted by savages and completely sur- 
rounded, and Mr. Taber severely wounded. On his return from this voyage to Sa'.i 
Francisco, he concluded to try mining which, with a mountain ranch near the foothills, 
occupied his time until 1855, when he made a visit to his old home. He made a study 
of dentistry, but his natural ability as an artist drew him to the studio, and he com- 
menced to investigate and practice photography. Here was a field suited to his refined 
taste, and his inventions and artistic talent brought popularity and fame to him in the 
art of photography. He opened one of the first galleries in Syracuse, New York, and 
his reputation as an artist induced the firm of Bradley & Rulofson to make exceptional 
inducements to enter into an engagement. 

He arrived in San Francisco in 1864, and continued in their employ for several 
years. After establishing a gallery at 12 Montgomery street and assisting Mr. Morse 
a short time, he opened the present gallery over the Hibernia Bank. In its appoint- 
ments, equipment and variety and quality of work there i3 no superior in the world. 
A large proportion of the notable men and women of the world who have visited Cali- 
fornia have had their portraits taken at "Taber 's." The landscape views and scenery are 
more varied and extensive than any gallery on the Pacific Coast. It was owing to his 
fitness as an artist that he was appointed one of the Commissioners of Yosemite Valley, an 
office he has filled with much credit. He is a member of GoldcA Gate Lodge, No. 8, 
A. 0. U. W., and also a member of several social organizations, he is married, and his 
marital i-elations have proved most fortunate and happy, his family consisting of an 
estimable wife and two lovely daughters. He is genial, unostentatious and generous. 
A man of few v.'ords, sound judgment, sensitive nature and keen intellect; and there 
is that happy expression and cordiality in his nature that have a tendency to charm and 
please all with whom he associates. See page 208. 


The subject of our sketch is descended from an ancestry of sterhng worth and 
notoriety. He is one of the leading citizens of Oakland, and it may be truly said he is 
a citizen of unblemished reputation and high standing in his community. 

He is a man of warm and ardent friendships, generous impulses and decided 
opinions. Having been trained in a rigid school of rectitude, he admits of no compro- 
mise with wrong, and is always ready to champion the right and assist the weak when- 
ever he can, regardless of aspersion or personal discomfort. His life has been one of 
continued usefulness, and his record has been one that has been that of a faithful/ro^r. 

Bro. Carothers has been elected Councilman for the City of Oakland for three con- 
secutive terms, and held the responsible position of Chief Baggage-master for the 
Central Pacific Railroad for sixteen years. 

Although be is one of the active business men of our community, he has given a 
large portion of his time and intelligent labor in promoting and enlarging our leading 
fraternal and beneficiary organizations. He is a charter member and P. M. W. of 
Occidental, No. G, Past Commander of Upchurch Legion, No. 9, S. K. ; served as Grand 
Vice-Commander two terms, and at their last Convention was unanimously elected 
Grand Commander. 

In his official duties he has shown tact and good judgment, and has gained the 
highest respect and esteem of his comrades. He is a prominent member of the 
I. O. O. F. and Oakland Encampment. 

Bro. Carothers is a fine type of manhood, a born leader, unblemished character, 
and a man of sterling worth. Modest and unassuming, his acceptance of high official 
positions has been taken reluctantly, and at the solicitation of his neighbors and 
associates. See page 209.

The distinctive character of the people who emigrated to Massachusetts early in 
the sixteenth century has been marked in the history of the country, and their descend- 
ants have during all these years maintained an ascendency in shaping, establishing 
and controlling the policy of the United States. William C. Flint traces his lineage 
back to 1635, through nine generations to the family of Flints who settled m the old 
commonwealth. That independence of thought, high intellectuality and rectitude 
which have marked the character of this family from generation to generation has been 
fully realized in the subject of this sketch. He is the son of Dr. Clement Flint, a 
physician of New York city, and was born in that city in 1854. His father moved to 
Rensselaer county, where his son was reared and educated. At the age of 15 years he 
had a certificate to teach school, and at 21 years he was^j Assistant District Attorney 
of Troy, N. Y., having passed a critical examination before the Supreme Court of that 
State with distinguished honors. His active brain, hard study and close attention to 
his profession (having a slender constitution), soon caused such a degree of ill-health, 
that under advice of his physicians he emigrated to California in May, 1876. Our 
genial climate restored his health, and his commanding ability as a lawyer has given 
him an extensive and lucrative practice, and by which he has gained pecuniary inde- 
pendence. He has been counsel in some of the most important litigations, confining 
himself exclusively to civil matters, and declining criminal cases. He is married and 
has two children living, a bright promising boy and a beautiful girl. His sympathetic 
nature and keen insight of the affairs of men enlisted him in promoting the fraternal, 
beneficiary and cooperative organizations which have for their object the benefit of 
mankind. He was one of the founders of the Ancient Order of United Workmen of this 
State, a member of the first Grand Lodge; an attendant at each succeeding session, and 
an officer almost continuously of that grand body since; District Deputy, Committee 
on Laws and Supervision, of which he was chairman in 1881 and 1882, and Committee 
of Appeals and Grievances in 1883 and 1886, and chairman in 1888; when by a flattering 
vote he was elected Grand Overseer. He joined the Odd Fellows in New York, united 
with Unity Lodge 131 of this city, and several times been elected a representative to the 
Grand Lodge. He is a member of San Francisco Council -142, A. L. of H., and at the ses- 
sion of the Grand Council two years ago was elected Supreme Representative, which posi- 
tion he now holds. For health, recreation, and having an ornithological fancy, lie has 
become an amateur naturalist. His collection of birds and their eggs, with the knowl- 
edge of their habits and nature has given him extended notoriety. He is Professor 
of Medical Jurisprudence in the California Medical College, and his lectures have the 
reputation of being highly finished and masterly productions. In all these years as an 
officer on important committees, in almost every organization of which he is a mem- 
ber, he has .shown fearless independence in his decisions and in the performance of 
duty, and in declaring what he considers the constitutional law, without considerations 
of personal policy. The language and arguments in his reports will compare favorably 
with the best legal decisions. As a public speaker lie is most interesting. He is fluent, 
caustic and logical, and while he avoids fulsome or floral oratory, his polished rhetoric, 
close analysis and humorous vein in anecdote or story pleases his audience and rivets 
their closest attention. By his own ability, industry and fraternal regard for his'fellow- 
men he has gained a front rank in his profession and a universal regard and esteem 
from his fraters.

The Order of the Knights of Pythias was founded in the city of Washington, D. C, 
Februrary 19, 1864. Justis H. Rathbone who wrote the ritual holds the title of "Founder 
and Past Supreme Chancellor." During the late Civil War estrangements were engen- 
dered, passions aroused, and sectional strife and hatred were the prominent charactei-istica 
of this period. It was the conception of the great philanthropic mind of the "Founder" 
and his associates, to establish a fraternal and semi-military order, that would assuage 
the heated passions and bind in the closest ties men who had felt the privations and 
pangs of war. 

The story of Damon and Pythias, that has been banded down from ancient times, 
in which the ties of friendship were so strong that one will risk his life to save his friend, 
was the foundation, and three great cardinal principles of Friendship, Charity and 
Benevolence were th3 corner-stones on which this great benevolent institution rests. 
Weekly and funeral benefits are given, not as a charity, but as a right. There is a 
Uniform Rank connected with this order which has become very popular, and which 
serves to keep the military spirit dominant, and enlist young men as members. In 1877 
an Endownment Rank was established, which provides for the payment of a certain 
amount at death to the widow and orphan or named legatee, in sums of $1,000, $2,000 
and $3,000. 

It has had a marvellous growth and now numbers 230,000 members, with 20,000 in 
the Uniform Rank and 17,000 in the Endownment Rank. This order was introduced 
into California in 1869, and now has 161 lodges and a membership of over 10,000. with 
1,500 in the Uniform Rank. Its knightly character, close friendship, and sem4-nii:itary 
feature combine to attract, educate, and relieve the distressed and improve society. 

The declaration of principles adopted by the Supreme Lodge says, "Our noble Order 
was instituted to uplift the fallen, to champion humanity, to be his guide and hope, hia 
refuge, shelter and defense, to soften down the asperities of life, to subdue party spirit, 
and by the sweet and powerf id attractions of the glorious trinity of Friendship, Charity 
and Benevolence, to bind in one harmonious brotherhood men of all classes and opinions. " 

Like most of our Orders, the Knights of Pythias in this State have had days of 
prosperity and times of disaster. Through good and evil reports, ordeals and trials, it 
has become one of the leading Orders of our State, and is at the present time in a 
growing and prosperous condition. In some parts of the State the members own their 
Castle Hall and recently the lodges of Sacramento have built a very commodious building 
in the heart of the Capital City.

In the rustle and bustle of life there are modest, unassuming men who guide and 
control great enterprises, give tone and character to our benevolent and fraternal 
organizations, and become the leaders in society by common consent. Their tact and 
ability is recognized, and their counsel is sought in pushing and promoting business 
intereits in all the commercial, mechanical and educational projects of our country. 

Col. Morrison has filled a station in life that entitles him to be ranked with the 
leading business men of this country and as one of the big-hearted, level-headed and 
efficient members of some of our prominent fraternal and beneficiary societies. He was 
born in Calais, Maine, Nov. 8, 1843, received a thorough education for a boy of 16 years, 
and emigrated to California'in 1859. In 1864 he commenced the study of law with 
George R. Moore of Sacramento, but before his admission to the bar was drawn away 
to Nevada by the noted "Washoe excitement," and went through the big boom and 
disasters of those times a sadder but wiser man. He was elected to the State Legisla- 
ture as representative for Storey county in 1873, and served as Clerk of the Assembly 
in 1883. 

His record in the Knights of Pythias has been brilliant, and in the I. O. O. F. with- 
out a precedent, he being the youngest Grand Master ever installed. He became early 
identified with the K. of P. in Nevada, represented Mystic Lodge, No. 3, at the Grand 
Lodge session held at Carson, 1876, was elected Grand Chancellor in the ninth annual 
session of the Grand Lodge of Nevada, held at Virginia City in 1881, was elected 
Supremo Representative to the Supreme Lodge at the tenth annual session of the Grand 
Lodge at Carson in 1882, and he has attended every session of the Supreme Lodge from 
that time. He was elected Inner Guard of the Supreme Lodge in 1888, at Detroit, and 
appointed Aide-de-Camp with the rank of Colonel, on the staff of Major-General Carna- 
han in 1886. In the Supreme Lodge he took a prominent place, and as he is a good 
talker, and always has "something to say," commanded attention. He was made 
Chairman of the Committee on State of the Order and Special Committee on the "Penn- 
sylvania question, " made up from prominent Knights, as follows: Bros. Morrison of 
Nevada^ Gale of Massachusetts, Shaw of Wisconsin, Graham of Alabama, Shropshira 
of Nebraska, Oyler of Indiana, and Van Valkenburg of Iowa. 

He served one term as Grand Master, I. 0. 0. F. of the State of Nevada, and Grand 
Patriarch of California while Nevada was under that jurisdiction. In 1883 he became 
identified with H. H. Bancroft, the historian, and is now a shareholder, director and 
secretary of the History Company, a large and important corporation with a paid-up 
capital of $500,000, and is also a director and stockholder in the Bancroft-Whitney Co., 
the largest law-publishing house on the Pacific Coast. He is married to Mary E. 
Howard, daughter of John L. Howard, a prominent family of Boston, Mass., and this 
happy union has been blessed with a family of four, one son and three daughters. He 
has a fine physique, attractive appearance and a magic charm in the use of words that 
gives him great influence and a high social position. 

The civic and fraternal official positions that have been given him have come with* 
out any solicitation or effort on his part, and have been accepted with the view of doing 
his duty, a characteristic of his whole life. He is a man of fine intellect, and as a con- 
versationalist, has a subtle power and fascinating expression that sways large assem- 
blages and gives him great influence among business associates. In the changing tide 
of fickle fortune he has had a ripe experience, yet in adversity and prosperity he has 
looked straight ahead with an abiding faith and tenacity of purpose that has brought 
him to the goal of his ambition, to be an influential and representative citizen among 
the solid business men of this commonwealth, and an honored leader among his fraters 
in the fraternal organizations of our country. See page

Inner Guard of the Supreme Lodge 



The life of C. W. Nevin is a striking example of push, industry and perseverance. 
Commencing at an early age the battle of life, he has passed through adversity and 
vicissitude, steadily advancing until he has amassed wealth, gained honor and esteem, 
and is now a leading business man and proprietor of a large printing-house. He was 
born in Iowa in 1S49, received a common school education, and at the age of fourteen 
years left home and parents. At the age of sixteen years found him in California, a 
"devil boy" in a printing-office in the country. He served as an apprentice on the iSan 
Francisco Examiner two years and eight years with Francis & Valentine, and became 
master in the art. 

He joined Myrtle Lodge Knights of Pythias, served in all the chairs, was elected 
Grand Representative in 1882, and has been re-elected each year to that position, and 
served on various committees in the Grand Lodge, being Chairman on Laws and Super- 
vision for 1887. In 1882 he was elected Vice-President of the K. of P. Library, and the 
following month was elected President, and has served in that capacity since. 

To his tact and administrative ability the success of Knights of Pythias Library 
■(one of the best in the State) is largely due. In 1882 he became a charter member of 
Memorial Lodge 174, A. O U. W., passed the chairs, was elected a Grand Represent- 
ative for several terms and District Deputy one year. He became a member of Cali- 
fornia Lodge, No. 12, B. P. 0., Elko, served in various official positions, became a 
member of the Grand Lodge, by service, and is now Treasurer of two consolidated 
Lodges — Golden Gate, No. 6. In 1885 he took a leading part in forming Memorial 
Lodge, No. 6, United Endowment Assf^ciates, was the first presiding officer, and first 
Representative to the Grand Lodge. He is also a member of the Workmen's Guarantee 
Fund, and several other benevolent Associations. 

In his association with these benevolent orders he has been selected as a counsellor 
and leader, and there is no person who has more influence among his fraters. In the 
management of several projects for raising money for benevolent purposes he has shown 
sagacity, tact and great executive ability, notably the Carnival for the benefit of the 
Elks last year, and the coming one for this year to be held at the Mechanics' Pavilion 
ou Thanksgiving day. Blossed in his marital relations, highly respected among his 
associates, his life and career has been one of usefulness and benefit to his fellow-men. 


(Supreme Representative of the Supreme Lodge of the World.) 

There are men in every community who earn distinguished honor by faithful 
and efficient service. Such has been the career of Col. E. T. Blackmer. The commanding 
form, genial nature and high intellectuality which he posesses give him an influence and 
attraction among his associates seldom seen. His Pythian history dates from 1871, 
when he was made a Knight in Welcome Lodge, No. 1, Chicago. In '73 he became a 
charter member, and first Chancellor Commander of Imperial Lodge, Chicago. He ha ? 
taken a deep interest in Pythianism, and was largely instrumental in forming San Diego 
Lodge, No. 28. In 1876 he was elected Grand Prelate, and advanced each session to 
Grand Vice Chancellor and Grand Chancellor. In 1880 he was elected Supreme 
Representative, and elected again in 1886 for four years, commencing January, 1888. 
In October, 1883, Chevalier, No. 6, of the Uniform Rank, was instituted in San Diego, 
and he was elected first Lieutenant Commander, and the following year Sir Knight 

In October, 1886, he was elected Colonel of the Third Regiment of the California 
Brigade. Brother Blackmer is a member of the Endowment Rank, Section No. 70, and 
has acted as Secretary and Treasurer for a number of years. He is also a member of 
San Diego Lodge, No. 35, F. and A. M., San Diego Chapter, No. 63, Loyal Legion of 
Commandery, and Heintz-jlman Post, No. 33, G. A. R. 

He has led an active life, and althougn 58 years of age he has an elastic step, and 
vigor that will warrant many years of service in the building up of society. See page 227.

President of K. of P. Library 



The opportunity of advancement under the genius of our institutions where 
there is push, perseverance and tenacity of purpose is well illustrated in the life of 
Stanton L. Carter. In his early manhood he was a farm laborer; and his only capital 
was a good constitution and stout heart. After graduating at the high school, having 
a desire for mercantile life, he entered Heald's Business College, San Francisco, and 
received his diploma. His vigorous intellect and grasping mind was dissatisfied with 
commercial pursuits and he commenced reading law. Within two years he was 
admitted to the bar and in a short time gained a lucrative practice and front rank in 
his profession. He is now of the firm of Carter & Smith, attorneys-at-law, located at 
Stockton, Cal. They have a large practice and make a specialty of land titles 
and land litigation and they are recognized as authority on all matters relating to realty; 
their practice extending not only into all the principal counties of this State but into the 
adjoining States as well* and in U. S. Courts, and before the Land Department at Wash- 
ington. He has steadily declined official position, although he filled the office of City 
Attorney for Stockton three years with signal success. Nature endowed him with a 
fine form, massive brain and a powerful voice. Firmness, tenacity and rectitude are 
leading traits in his character, and his magnetism, logical reasoning and pleasing 
address make him a noted advocate and one of the most effective public speakers in 
this State. In his marital relations he has been very fortunate, and his family consists 
of a beautiful and estimable wife and three children. He was made a Knight in 1876 
at the institution of Centennial Lodge, No. 38, K. of P. , of which he was a charter 
member, and was appointed Inside Guard the san^e evening he received the Knight 
Rank, and served successively as Master at Arms, Vice-Chancellor, Chancellor Com- 
mander, and Past Chancellor. In I8S0 he was elected a Representative, and served in 
that capacity continuously until his election to the office of Grand Chancellor in 1884, 
and has since represented his Lodge in the Grand Lodge. Immediately upon his 
admission to the Grand Lodge ho was appointed Chairman of the Committee on Law 
and Supervision, and served upon that committee until his election as G. C, audit 
now a member of tlaat Committee. His thorough knowledge of Pythian law* 
caused him to be unanimously selected by the Grand Lodge of 1887 to 
prepare and compile a Pythian Digest. This work is replete and carefully revised; 
containing all decisions of importance since the introduction of the Order in this State, 
and has been pronounced by experts in Pythian law one of the best compilationg ever 


In this age of advancement and benevolence men who are in their nature philan- 
thropic find in these fraternal and charitable organizations a field for labor and a society 
home that to them is a realization of their best enjoyment. There are, in all commun- 
ities, men whose characteristics, education and personality eminently fit them for 
leaders in their charitable organizations. Of such is Brother Crowley, who has a large 
experience in the affairs of bene/olenfc societies, and whose genial manner and generous 
nature are prominent characteristics in his career and well qualify him for official posi- 
tion. He waj a charter member of Tamalpais, and took the position of C. C. when 
apathy prevailed. By earnest effort he infused new life into this subordinate and put 
it in a high state of prosperity. He has been prominently before the Grand Lodge a 
number of years, filled positions as a member of the most important committees, and 
served as State Deputy in 1887. He was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, in 1846, 
and is now in the prime of manhood. He is a graduate from a local college, has been 
admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, and is now one of 
the prominent members of the San Francisco bar. 

Brother Crowley has filled the Worshipful Master's chair in Marin Lodge, No. 191, 
F. and A. M., and is a member of Petaluma Chapter and Mount Olive Commandery, 
No. 20, Knights Templar. He is also a member of Spartan Lodge, No. 36, A. O. U. W., 
and Workman's Guarantee Association. We quote the following from a recent 
sketch : 

" Brother Crowley is of medium hight, broad-shouldered, full-chested and solidly 
built, keen eyes, strongly marked, determed features, and a very active mind. He is 
in the full flush of manhood, enjoys excellent health, and the chances are highly in his 
favor of his remaining on this mundane sphere for many years. He possesses a large 
etock of patience, deals kindly and leniently with the erring, is courteous to all, gener- 
ous almost to a fault, and has by these characteristics won for himself tha esteem and 
affection of all his brother Knights." See page 223. 




The trials, triumphs and vicissitudes of life are vividly illustrated in the career of 
Frank H. Farrar, now City Attorney for Merced. He was born in Mississippi in 1848. 
Bis father, Rev. Wm. M. Farrar, was editor of the Mississippi Baptist, the official organ 
of the Baptist Church in the State of Mississippi. His son, Frank H. Farrar, was edu- 
cated at the Mississippi College in Clinton and had progressed in his studies as far aa 
the Freshman class. In 1863, at the age of 15, he enlisted in the Confederate service 
under General Longstreet and served in the Army of Virginia until Lee surrendered at 
Appomattox Court House. He was in the celebrated charge at the battle of Gettys- 
burg . made by Pickett. The fortunes of war left his family almost penniless, and 
consequently he commenced to set type at his old home. 

Brother Farrar worked at his trade four years, until 1869, when he came to Cali- 
fornia and settled in Merced. In 1872 he entered the law office of Hon. P. D. Wiggin- 
ton as a student of law. For a term of two years, until 1875, he was editor and publisher 
of the Merced Express, when he returned to the practice of his profession, forming a 
partnership with his old preceptor, Mr. Wigginton. In 1879 he was elected District 
Attorney of Merced county, and was re-elected in 1882 to the same office. 

In 1873 Brother Farrar married Miss Udola Peck, a most estimable young woman — 
a union that has been blessed with two very promising boys. 

In 1874 he joined Yosemite Lodge, No. 30, Knights of Pythias, and from that 
period he has taken a deep interest in this Lodge and in the Order at large, B rom the 
time he entered the Grand Lodge until he was Grand Chancellor in 1887, he was a 
member of the most important committees and Vice-Grand Chancellor two terms, 1885 
and 1886. 

Nature has endowed him with an extraordinary bright intellect and 
remarkable gifts as an orator. His public speeches are notable, and especially the one 
given as an address of welcome to General Grant, at the time he visited Merced, was a 
masterpiece of refined elegance, classical rhetoric and patriotic oratory. His power of 
speech, fine address and magnetic influence before a jury have given him great standing 
and extensive practice. 

Brother Farrar is not large of stature, but is of a fine physique, genial nature, and 
has a very attractive appearance. He has passed through an ordeal of trial, privation 
and adversity in the calamities of civil war, and by his own efforts made himself one of 
the foremost men of our State. He is loved, esteemed, and has higher prospects 
awaiting him — civic, political and fraternal. 

In this time of extravagance, eflfeminacy and degeneracy of young men we can 
quote with approbation the courage of Brother Farrar as one who has fitly exemplified 
the possibilities for a man to outlive misfortune and become an educated, useful and 
honored American citizen. See page 224. 

Knights of Pythias. 

Pythian.s have an altar that has been hallowed by the fealty of mutual vows and 
ties, by fraternal love and prayer. In this faith and along this line of procedure the 
Order of Knights of Pythias has prospered and blessed the world. The acorn, planted 
twenty-five years ago, has become a majestic tree, whose branches touch every city and 
town in these States. The little handful of friends to whom J. H. Rathbone read a 
ritual he had prepared, largely based upon the legend of Damon and Pythias, has, in a 
few swift years, become a mighty host, expending millions every year in reliefs, burials 
and other beneficent ways — to say nothing of the sums required for the current 
expenses of the subordinate Lodges. Such success shows that not only is the central 
Idea of this Order in harmony with the spirit of the age, but that its affairs have, in 
the main, been honestly and ably managed.

If the scars of battle in the defense of his country's flag, if bravery, suffering, and 
devotion in the service of his country are the highest honors in'this land of the free, 
then the subject of our sketch has enough of glory and distinction to satisfy the highest 
ambition. He was born in Indiana in 1846, and when the War of the Rebellion broke 
out in 1861, he being then under fifteen years of age, enlisted as a private in Company 
E, 19th Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, to serve three years, or during the 

Early in the war his regiment became a part of what was afterward the famous 
" Old Iron Brigade, " composed of the 19th Indiana, 2d, 6th, and 7th Wisconsin, and 
later the 24th Michigan. He participated in sixteen battles, in four of which he was 
severely wounded, as follows; August, 1862, Gainseville and second Bull Run, in right 
thigh. At Gettysburg, July, 1863, he rescued the flag of his regiment after the color- 
bearer had been wounded, thereby becoming color-bearer himself; but later in the fight, 
during a terrible charge of the enemy, iiewas shot through the right shoulder, disabling 
him to such an extent that he was barely able to save himself from capture. At the 
great battle of the Wilderness, May, 1864, while carrying the flag he received a wound 
through the body, which the surgeon upon examining declared was mortal, and when 
the order came to remove the wounded to Fredericksburg during Grant's flank move- 
ment on Lee's forces, it was at first determined to leave him behind because of the next 
to impossibility of his recovery; but the officer in charge being a personal acquaintance 
was finally induced to remove him. 

After having recovered so that he could do light duty, he returned to his regiment, 
uhen in front of Petersburg, and was soon thereafter commissioned a second lieutenant. 
On March 25, 1865, just fourteen days before Lee's surrender, while in charge of a por- 
tion of the skirmish line on Hatcher's Run, he received a shot from a rebel sharpshooter 
through the right leg, which caixsed its amputation near the body. 

After the war closed he returned to Indiana, and as soon as his wound was suffici- 
ently healed started to school, which he attended for nine months, and then engaged 
in teaching a primary school, read law, worked at whatever he could get to do, and in 
1875 came to California, settling at Dixon in Solano county, where he commenced the 
practice of his profession. He was elected District Attorney of Solano county in 1879, 
and reelected in 1882. 

In 1884 he was elected Judge of the Superior Court of his county, a position which 
he now holds, and we are informed is likely to hold as long as he may desire to do so. 
He is among the most able and popular Superior Judges of this State, being a man of 
sterling integrity, learning in the law, and a mind exactly fitted for a judicial station. 
He became a member of Suisvin Lodge, No. Ill, at its institution in 1884, and has been 
a member of the Grand Lodge ever since the session in 1885 at Los Angeles. 

At the session held in San Francisco in 1886 he was elected Grand Prelate, at Santa 
Rosa in 1887 Grand Vice-Chancellor, and at San Francisco, 1888, was unanimously 
elected Grand Chancellor, a position he has filled with great credit to himself and honor 
and advantage to the order. During his term as Grand Chancellor he visited all save 
fourteen of the Lodges in the State, and has done much to advance the cause of Pythian 
Knighthood in California. 

Judge Buckles is also an Odd Fellow, a member of the A.O.U. W. and Druids, and 
a prominent member of the Grand Army of the Republic. He is very popular among 
his comrades, and it is confidently expected that he will be elected Department Com- 
mander. As a patriot, soldier, and judicial officer he has made a grand record, and 
higher honors will be tendered him.

In June 1885 General A. M. Winn issued a call to young native Calif ornians to 
meet him at Washington Plaza, for the purpose of forming a youthful company to 
appropriately celebrate the Fourth of July. It was the conception of this honored 
veteran and patriot to link the days of "49" in some manner with our natal day by a 
parade of the Sons of Pioneers. The juvenile Californians came in scores and hundreds 
at the bugle call of the "Old General" and this section of the parade was the subject 
of much favorable comment and seemed to rejuvenate the bronzed pioneers and rekindle 
the memories of one of the most wonderful epochs in the woild's history. Patriotism 
had gathered this incongruous body of enthusiatic Sons of the Golden West; and it 
occurred to General Winn who had a large experience and practical knowledge of the 
benefits to be derived by association for charity's sake to perpetuate this new-born mush, 
room society. The superstructure on which it was built was, to unite them in one 
harmonious body throughout the State by ties of a friendship mutually beneficial to all, 
and unalloyed by the bitterness of religious or political differences, the discussion of 
which is largently forbidden in its meetings; to elevate and cultivate the mental faculties; 
to rejoice with one another in prosperity; and extend the good Samaritan hand in 

The members must bear a good reputation for sobriety and industry ; they must 
follow some respectable calling by which to make a living, and as a vital principle of the 
association, it encourages temperance among its members and recommends total absti- 
nence from all intoxicating drinks. 

None are eligible except native Californians, born since July I, 1846. All applicants 
must be over eighteen years of age. 

There has been established a well-regulated system of sick benefits; and in connection 
with their auxiliary, the Native Daugters of the Golden West, have gained a popularity, 
influence and notoriety that eclipses any similar order on the Pacific Coast. Their 
inheritance from a line of aristocratic blood and luxurious surroundings is quite marked 
in their grand celebrations, gorgeous paraphernalia and expensive banners. This order 
is one that is destined to exert a great moral force in this community, and in a marked 
degree control the social and political status of this commonwealth. 

In the Pioneer Building on Fourth Street the Native Sons have a fine reading-room 
where our young men congregate, and this has become a prominent feature in our social 
and political life.

The Pacific Coast has reared a generation of men and women physically and 
mentally the peers of any people. Climate, descent and a cosmopolitan association 
have perpetuated the chivalric blood of adventurous pioneers. We point with pride to 
a native race of gallant men and lovely women as worthy of the inheritance of this 
favored land. Senator Jones is a good representative of a native Calif ornian. He was 
born in the county of Colusa, State of California, on the 28th of February, 1858. His 
education was completed at Yale College, from which institution he graduated with the 
degree of LL. B. in 1879, and was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of the 
State of Connecticut, and also in the Supreme Court of the State of California in that 
year. In 1882 he was elected District Attorney of Butte county, in which county he 
has resided since 1880. In 1886 he was elected Senator from the Fourth District of 
the State of California, serving during two sessions, during which he passed the bill 
creating a Normal School for Northern California, which was located in Chico. His 
energies were devoted to measures that particularly afifected his district. 

He has taken great interest in fraternal societies, having served as Grand Lecturer 
of the Native Sons of the Golden West during the year 1881, and in 1883 was elected 
Grand President of the Order. It was during his administration that the Order began 
to flourish. He in also a Mason, having taken the Templar and Mystic Shrine degrees. 
As an Odd Fellow he has taken great interest in the Order, having been a delegate to 
the Grand Encampment of the State of California in 1885, at which time he presented 
the Grand Encampment with a magnificent gavel and was also selected to present the 
jewel to the retiring Grand Patriach. In 1889, as a delegate to the Grand Lodge, 
I. 0. O. F., he was selected to deliver the jewel to Past Grand Master Lloyd. He has 
a pleasing address, fine physique, and a happy faculty of impressing his associates, 
and in enterprises connected with the developement of the northern portion of the 
State and politically he has been selected a leader. His record as an official has been 
clean, with an eye single for the public weal. Although carefully pursuring hia 
profession as Attorney at Law, he has found time to enter into business enterprises 
and has become well known in the development of the resources of Northern 
California. His name is frequently heard mentioned as the young men's candidate for 
executive honors. See page 237. 


The life and labor of Chas. W. Decker in fraternal society life is a signal illustra- 
tion of the spirit of this age. He was born in Sacramento county, 1355, graduated 
from the Lincoln Grammar school and after a full course of study received a diploma 
from the Medical College of the Pacific as a dentist, which occupation he follows 
with distinguished success. He joined California Parlor, No. 1, 1877, N. S. G. W., and 
, has held office continuously in this order since. In the Grand Lodge he has earned the 
title of Grand Treasurer, Grand Lecturer, Grand Vice-President, and Past Grand Presi-. 
dent, and is President of N. S. G. W. Hall association, and President of the Golden 
West Publishing association. Director of the Library association, N. S. G. W. ; Chair- 
man of Finance committee, Grand Parlor, 1888; member of G. A. M. Wiim Monument 
Fund, and Historian of this N. S. G. W. He is a member of Mission lodge. No. 1G9, F. 
and A. M., California Chapter, No. 5, R. A. M., and Knights of Kadosh, 30 degree, 
A. and A. S. Rite. He is also Past Dictator of Tancred lodge, K. of H. ; Past Master 
Workman, Valley lodge. No. 30, A. O. U. W.; Charter member Unity lodge Gl, K. of 
P., and Director of K. of P. Hall association. In Court Golden State, No. 7495, A. 0. 
F., he holds membership; in the Olympic club and several social, financial and benevo- 
lent institutions. 

His association with the great fraternal and beneficiary orders in leading official 
positions is larger than any other native Californian, or of one of his age in this State. 
He has a high reputation in his profession, is popular among his associates, and his tact, 
ability, and large experience warrant him leadership and continued usefulness in 
society, and fraternal and beneficiary orders. 

The growing pride among Native Sons in this great commonwealth, and the men 
who have been selected as leaders, have given them a prestige and place at home and 
abroad equal to any association of men, and highly complimentary to them individually.

It IS conceded by student, historian and economist that the Argonauts of California 
were among the most remarkable body of men in this or any other age. Our native 
■ons and daughters have proved themselves worthy representatives of honored sires. 
The subject of our sketch was born in San Francisco, but has resided in Sacramento 
continuously since he was three weeks old, and his father, a native of France, 
TJid his mother, a native of England, arrived in this State in 18-49. Mr. Gregory, Sr., 
established his business, a produce shipping and commission house, shortly after his 
arrival in the State and continued until his death in 1871. Mrs. Gregory, with a 
family of four sons and three daughters, continued the business, and with the 
assistance of her sons, Eugene J. Gregory and Frank Gregory, who are now the firm of 
Gregory Brothers, continuously for a period of nearly f ortj' years. In this connection it is 
but a j ust tribute to this remarkable and sagacious woman to quote what her son, Mayor 
Gregory, has said : "On all important matters connected with our house I always con- 
sult my mother and have folio wed her advice. Any success that I have had I owe it to the 
good counsel of my mother." His house is one of the largest in the United States and 
is rated high commercially. Last year they sent East over 400 carloads of fruit. He 
received his education in the public schools, Santa Clara College and the State Uni- 
versity. Two years ago he was elected Mayor of Sacramento by nearly 2,000 majority, 
and his administration has been one of the best in the history of the city. He is a 
Past Master of Tehama Lodge, No. 17, F. and A. M.; Past Grand Guide of the Ancient 
Order of United Workmen; member of Capital Lodge, No. 87, I. O. 0. F.; Sacra- 
mento Parlor, No. 3, Native Sons of the Golden West, and Noble Arch of Union 
Grove, No. 61, Order of Druids. He is a leading Republican in politics and a member 
of the celebrated Dirigo Club, Sutter Club of Sacramento and Republican Alliance of 

In all enterprises to benefit art, science or the advancement of our State he takes 
a deep interest. He is President of the Board of Control of Crocker's Art Gallery 
and the Museum Association and Director of State Mineralogical Institution. He is a 
Director and one of the Executive Committee of the California Fruit Union, Sonoma 
Development Company and a Director of the Sacramento Board of Trade. He is mar- 
ried, and his marital union has been most fortunate. His wife was Miss Emma J. 
Crump, who is a noble and accomplished native of Sacramento city. Nature fashioned 
him in a generous mould. He has a fine physical organization, an impressive manner ; 
genial, frank, firm in liis convictions of duty and a magnetism that makes him leader. 
During a long career as a merchant and as a public officer he has gained the highest 
respect and esteem of his fellow-citizens. His comprehensive mind, tact and executive 
ability has earned him great popularity and presages a bright future and higher honors. 

Never forsake a friend. When enemies gather around, when sickness falls on the 
heart, when the world is dark and cheerless, is the time to try true friendship. They 
who turn from tlie scene of distress betray hypocrisy, and prove that interest only 
moves them. If you have a friend who loves you — who has studied your interest and 
happiness — be sure to sustain him in adversity. Let him feel that his former kindness 
is appreciated, and that his love was not thrown away. Real fidelity may be rare, but 
it exists — in the heart. They only deny its worth and power who have never loved a 
friend or labored to make one happy. The good and the kind, the affectionate and the 
virtuous, see and feel the heavenly influence.

The Sons of California have proved themselves worthy representatives of tne most 
distinguished emigration that ever graced any portion of the United States. 

The subject of our sketch is a favorite son of this commonwealth. He has been 
tried in tlie crucible of responsible official position and his administration was charac- 
terized by courtesy, dignity and fidelity to the duties he had assumed. He is small in 
stature, massive brain, pleasant address and such a happy pose of mind that makes 
him a popular leader. 

He served as Tax Collector two years for the City and County of San Francisco, 
and Deputy State Treasurer for two years under Governor Stoneman's administration^ 

In Society life he has filled all the subordinate offices in the Native Sons of 
the Golden West, and-one year as Grand President. He served as Master Workman 
of Valley Lodge, A. 0. U. W., and representative to the Grand Lodge for five sessions. 
Whilst he has decided opinions in political life, his patriotism and conscientious duty 
as a citizen have kept him from the "dirty pool" in politics. His aim has been to 
elevate partisan strife l^y an open, manly and dignified contest. 

His occupation is real estate, and he holds a leading position as one of the 
reliable firms of San Francisco. In the prime of manhood, surrounded by an interesting 
family, there seems do be a bright future aAvaiting the genial, generous, and methodical 
Native Son of the Golden West, John H. Grady. 


As gravitation shapes alike the atom or star, so the fraternal idea passes beyond 
the limit of a room, the circle of a family. Lodge or Guild, and jjermeates every phase 
of society. "We are all members of one body." No man liveth to himself and no man 
dieth to himself." There runs through all relations a double sense; we are indebted to 
others for what they have done, and are thereby placed under obligations to take up 
the ark where they left it and go forward in helping to increase the world's store of 
good and happiness. Every home, every church, every Lodge is an epitome of the 
world. Humanity dwells on the earth in a state of interdependence, and by the silent 
operation of a law, as unerring as that which sends tne rain upon the just and unjust, 
each one is made in some degree to help carrj' forward the great work of the world. 


It is meet and proper that the Native Sons should take Admission Day under their 
special care. The Argonauts are fast passing away. The venerable members of the 
Society of California Pioneers will soon be numbered with the silent army of the dead, 
and their deeds of pluck and daring, their romantic adventures, their grand work in 
laying tiie foundation of a noble State will live only in song and story. It is gratifying 
to note the fact that the society organized by their sons, modeled after the pattern of the 
Pioneers, to aid in perpetuating the history of the State, and carry forward the ark of 
its prosperity and glory, is steadily on the increase, that its officers and members are 
full of zeal, are working in harmony and are as true in heart and character as they are 
sound in body and mind. The Order is destined to have a glorious career and grow apace 
with the advance and development of the State. The mantle of the Argonauts falls upon 
worthy heirs.

Oa the 11th of July, 1875, Mr. Steinbach was elected President of what is now 
California Parlor, No. 1, and during his term of office laid the foundation for this growing 
Order. As General Winn was the " Founder," Brother Steinbach has earned the title 
of " Father." . . 

He was a bright, active boy of 15 years of age, when the organization was first 
attempted by General Winn in 1869. During his first term in office and since his mind 
has been wrapped up in advancing, building and crystallizing this humane and popular 
organization. During his term of office as Grand President of the Grand Parlor there 
were thirty-seven parlors organized; a larger number than in any administration in their 

history. . „ , . 

As an ardent son of worthy sires who laid the foundation of this great common- 
wealth, he visited 211 Parlors during his term of office as Grand President, at his own 

As a speaker his arguments are decisive, his language fluent, his points well taken, 
and his illustrations very happily expressed. He always wins the approbation of his 
audience, and they leave impressed with the verity of his arguments. He is perfectly 
conversant with the history of the Order from its incipiency to its present maturity, and 
can therefore speak and act intelligently about its transactions. 

His life lias been an honored and useful one, and he takes a deep interest in civic 
and political affairs. He has served as School Director for the city and county of San 
Francisco, and has earned the titles by good service as Past Chancellor of the Knights 
of Pythias; Past Councillor of Chosen Friends; Past Officer of the United Order of 
Honor, and numerous other social and political organizations. 

As a representative Californian, wliose career has been one of service to his native 
State, he has proved himself worthy of the honor that has been given him, and a popular 
son of an Argonaut. 


General A. M. Winn was born in Loudon county, Virginia, April 27, 1810, his 
death occurring on the 26th of August, 1883, in Sonoma county. He was 73 years and 4 
months old, having more than scored the biblical " threescore years and ten. " Tliere 
was a poetic sentiment in laying the old pioneer to rest in the home of his earlier 
endeavors, Sacramento, where tlie waters of the river of that name will sing his 
perpetual requiem. 

He saw California spring from a territorial condition to statehood; was present at 
its Ijirth and baptism, and witnessed its growth till a world stood aghast on beholding 
the young Giant of the Pacific. General Winn's first official position was as a member 
of the Capital City's Council, and on the death of Sacramento's first Mayor he was 
chosen to that responsible position. In the '49 days he was President of the Relief 
Association of Odd Fellows, which was organized for the benefit of the sick and desti- 
tute brethren of that charitable Order. General Winn, through life, felt the impulses 
of Charity, and his life was a practical illustration of the fact that through deeds and 
not through mere professions are her works felt. Almost simultaneously with the 
organization of the Relief Association, the Masons and Odd Fellows of Sacramento 
instituted a hospital for the ])enefit ef the sick and destitute members of those organiza- 
tions, and General Winn was foremost in the movement. 

General Winn, in June, 1850, as Brigadier-General, issued a proclamation to his 
command to appropriately celebrate the approaching Fourth of July. The exact date 
of the proclamation was June 29, 1850, and on the same date in 1885, 35 years later, 
at the Bay City of California, he issued a call to the young native Californians to meet, 
to organize an association or order, from which grew the Native Sons of the Golden 

In 1860, General Winn took up his residence in San Francisco, remaining there 
antil a few years before his death.

This fraternal and beneficiary Order was instituted sixteen years ago. Its objects 
are-as stated in their constitution: 

" 1. — To unite fraternally all acceptable white men of every profession, business 
and occupation. 

" 2. — To give all possible moral and material aid in its power to its members, and 
those depending on its members, by holding moral, instructive and scientific lectures, 
by encouraging each other in business, and by assisting each other to obtain employ- 

■' 3. — To promote benevolence and charity by establishing a Widows and Orphans' 
Benefit Fund, from which by the satisfactory evidence of the death of a member of the 
Order, who has complied with all the lawful requirements, a sum not exceeding two 
thousand dollars ($2,000) shall be paid to such member, or members of his family, or 
person or persons dependent on him as he may designate. " 

Having passed a medical examination, the petitioner must be a white male person, 
between the ages of eighteen and fifty years, in order to be admitted as a beneficiary 

Subordinate Lodges may provide by their by-laws for the payment of weekly sick 
benefits; but whether paying weekly sick benefits or not it is their duty to look after - 
their sick or disabled members. 

Since its institution it has gathered together a membership of over one hundred 
and thirty thousand men, and has paid, without deducting a single penny for commis- 
sions or expenses, to eleven thousand widowed families, the sum of twenty-four millions 
of dollars. All moneys collected on assessments go directly to pay death losses, the 
expenses attendant on the collection and disbursement of the Widows and Orphans' 
Benefit Fund being paid from money raised by the per capita tax, and from sale of 
Bupplies, thus keeping the Widows and Orphans' Benefit Fund sacred to the purpose for 
which it is collected, namely, the payment of death losses. 


Organized at Louisville, Ky., under special enactment of the Legislature of the 
Commonwealth of Kentucky, in the year 1873. Admits to membership between the 
ages of 18 and 50. Pays a death benefit of $2,000, or one-half rate, $1,000, at death, 
collected by assessment of $1 on the membership for full rate. Assessments graded

The native sons of California have stepped into the arena of public life and are a 
constituent and powerful factor in political, social and civic affairs of this common- 
wealth. Prominent among these is the subject of our sketch. He was born in San 
Francisco in the year 1855, passed through the vicissitudes incident to life in a new 
country, and gained a ripe experience in early manhood. During his whole life he has 
been a close student, is a graduate of college, received the degree of A. B. in 1873, and 
the degree of A. M. in 1874, at the age of nineteen years. 

In his profession as an attorney-at-law he has taken the front rank and has been 
retained in some of the most important cases in our State Courts and United States 
Supreme Court, during the last three years. He has a pleasant address, genial manner, 
benevolent nature and has drifted easily into a large number of our fraternal and bene- 
ficiary societies. 

In 1880 he joined the K. of H., was appointed District Deputy for three successive 
years, 1883, '84 and '85. In 1S8G he was elected Assistant Grand Dictator, and in 
March, 1887, Grand Dictator. 

As a public speaker he is pleasing, argumentative and concise; seldom indulges in 
oratorical flights, but analyzes, and by facts and figures presents his subject in such a 
masterly manner that his audience is charmed and instructed. 

He has a high social standing, unimpeachable character, temperate habits and 
scholarly attainments. In owv benevolent societies he holds a membership in 
California Lodge, No. 1, F. & A. M. ; California Chapter; California Council; Knights 
Templar; Past Noble Grand of Occidental Lodge, No. 179, I. O. 0. F. ; Ex- President of 
S. F. Relief Committee, I. 0. 0. F. ; and one of the Ex-Trustees of Oriental Encamp- 
ment, No. 57, I. 0. 0. F. He is also a member of Stanford Parlor. N. S. G. W.; 
Spartan Lodge, 36, A. O. U. W. ; and Golden Council American Legion of Honor. See 
page 243. 


iNSURAycE is not an institution of equity, but an organized association for the 
pi"otection of the families of its members against the loss of support; and when a 
member dies one hour after he has joined the association his family has suflFered the 
loss for which he has provided, and they are justly entitled (fraud excepted) to the 
insurance without any regard to the equity in the payments ; and every surviving 
member is morally and legally bound to pay his share of the loss which his fellow- 
member's family sustained. The whole transaction is fair and square, honorable and 
commendable, and equity is an intruder and disturber in a business where it has no 
right to be. There is a nobleness and a holiness of purpose in an association for 
mutually assisting each other's family in case of a loss of their support, which utterly 
overshadows the equity cf dollars and cents in the costs and benefits of insurance. 


The civic and military life of Capt. Warfield has been one of honor and faithful 

Comrade R. H. Warfield was a charter member of Post No. 1, G. A. R., Department 
of New York, and he is probably the oldest member of the G. A. R. in California. He 
is also a companion of the California Commandery, M. 0. L. L. U. 8., and a member of 
the Society of the Army of the Potomac. 

Captain Warfield is a resident of Sonoma county, California, and is a member of 
Rod Matheson Post, No. 16, located at Healdsburg. He was Grand Treasurer of the 
Grand Lodge, Knights of Honor, an office he held continuously for five years. He is 
now, and has been since its organization in 1877, cashier of the Farmers and Mechanics ' 
Bank of Healdsburg, Sonoma county, California. 

When Captain AVarfield was elected Department Commander of California, Grand 
Army of the Republic, there were 69 Posts and 3,500 comrades; at the close of his term 
there M'ere 90 Posts and 4,545 comrades. 

At the last session of the Grand Lodge, K. of H.,'he was reelected Grand Dictator, 
which position he is filling with much credit.

Ihe American Legion of Honor was organized in Dec. 1878 in the City of Boston, 
Mass. , with eleven members and is incorporated under the laws of that State. It was 
the first organization of the fraternal insurance character to admit both sexes upon equal 
terms and privileges, an experiment that has proved eminently successful. Within the 
first five years the membership rail up to nearly 50,000 while now a little over ten years 
old it numbers 63,000. 

The personnel of membership is equal to if not superior to any order in this country, 
and it is among the gratifying results attained in enlisting a large number of our leading 
citizens as beneficiary and honorary members. Its name, system of government and 
finance, as well as its humane and liberal provisions in assisting the sick, have given it 
a popularity and attraction that seems to warrant its perpetuity and future usefulness. 

Benefits — Its plan of benefits given to beneficiaries of its members is arranged so 
as to meet all classes ranging from $500 to $5,000, while the rates of assessments are 
low and the cost of insurance less than one-half of old line insurance and equal with the 
best of fraternals. 

Relief Benefits — It also provides for the payment of from $2.00 to $20.00 per 
week according to the amount of the certificate to members when sick or disabled for a 
term not exceeding ten weeks in any one year or one-fifth of the face of the certificate; 
altogether : The amount thus drawn to be deducted from the sum to be paid at death. 
By this means unfortunate members who desire, as it is optional, can receive assistance 
in their lifetime and when it may be most needed. 

Guarantee Fund — It has also made provisions for a guarantee fund by setting 
aside five per cent, of all assessment money, to be used in any emergency that may arise 
requiring excessive assessments and insure beyond any question the full payment of all 
certificates of those who die in the Order even though in the remotest probabilities the 
assessment fell below a sum sufficient to meet the claims. By this every persistent 
member is secure in the payment of his certificate at his death. This fund is securely 
invested at interest, and will remain a perpetual investment for the benefit of the 
members of this Order. When it reaches its maximum, $500,000, the surplus thereof 
will be divided annually among all members who have been so for five years and over, 
and thus materially aid in the payment of assessment in declining years. This fund 
has reached about $225,000 in less than two years. This Order was the first of paternal 
organizations to adopt this strong safeguard for the protection of those for whom it was 
originally designed — the families of its members. In this, wisdom and financial foresight 
has been shown, which can but help to increase its popularity and strength and place it 
on a par with other strong associations having similar features. 

Prompt Payment of death losses is another feature of this order, which is not 
excelled by any and equal to the best. Arrangements have been perfected with the Anglo- 
Californian Bank by which all warrants on their Treasury are paid without any cost to 

Since the organization of the order in the State there has been paid to deceased 
members' families the sum of $861,500. There was paid during 1888 in the entire 
order $2,448,000 besides $52,492 for relief benefits, and since its organization in 1879 
to date over $13,000,000. 

The cash invested assets amount to $270,951.86, contingent $223,214.92, making a 
total of $494,166.78 with all death losses paid up to Jan. 1, 1889, when these reports 
were made. This shows a financial standing that is certainly most creditable, and places 
the order on a sure foundation and among the best of insurance associations.

For many years the subject of our sketch has been prominent as an active worker 
and leader in fraternal and beneficiary organizations. Although a leading merchant 
and manufacturer, and much of his time engrossed in business aflfairs, he devotes a 
great deal of labor and attention to these humanitarian orders. His high qualificationa 
and successful career as a buiuness man; his open, frank and genial ways; his exten- 
sive acquaintance, happy pose of mind, and executive ability have given him a popu- 
larity seldom accorded to a person who has been actively engaged in a commercial 

In his appreciated labors for his co-workers he has persistently advocated a policy 
of liberal, just and uncompromising business principles in building up these co-opera- 
tive and beneficiary associations. His speeches and addresses are characterized by 
plain, concise and exhaustive statements of the subject matter, without any attempt at 
eloquence or oratorical efiforts. His administration as the Chief Executive of the 
American Legion of Honor has been one of fidelity, popularity and unqualified success. 
He was born in Rochester, N. Y., in 1840; educated in the public schools, and com- 
m«*nced life as a "sailor boy," arriving in San Francisco in 1858. He joined Grass 
Valley Lodge, No. 12, I. O. O. F., in 1862; passed the chairs and was elected a Grand 
Representative in 1866; served three years as Marshal of the Veteran Odd Fellows* 
Association, and is now one of the Directors. He helped to organize Burns Lodge, 
A. O. U. W., in 1878, and Olympic Lodge in 1879, and was elected Grand Repre- 
sentative several terms. In 1880 he joined Bohemian Council, A. L. of H., and was 
elected Grand Representative in 1883. 

In the Grand Council he held the position of Grand Trustee, Grand Vice-Com- 
mander, and in 1887 was unanimously elected Grand Commander. He now holds the 
position of Grand Treasurer of the Legion of the West, and President of the Occi- 
dental Loan Association. He has been prominert in civic affairs for a long time. He 
has held the position of U. S. Internal Revenue Collector, Assistant Clerk in the 
Assembly, Assistant Secretary of the Senate, Secretary of the Republican County 
Committee for three years, and is known as an active and sagacious worker in political 
affairs. He is one of the firm of Curtis & Dixon, wholesale dealers in and manufacturers 
of cigars in San Francisco. 

In his domestic relations he has been highly blessed; in his business career a suc- 
cess; and his natural ability as a leader and counsellor in the fraternal, political and 
monetary associations with which he has been connected has given him a large 
acquaintance all over the Pacific Coast and Eastern vStates. See page 253. 

The fraternal Orders are a national blessing. They promote thrift, economy and 
sobriety without freezing the soul into selfishness, as is apt to be the case in the usual 
struggle for wealth or high social position. They bring men into closer social relations 
and cherish those feelings that thrive and put forth blossoms in each other's welfare. They 
make men thoughtful and helpful, expanding the sentiments of love, charity and good- 
will.. They teach us the religion that breaks bread to the hungry, gives a cup of water 
fco the thirsty, watches at the bed of the sick, visits the imprisoned, the fatherless and 
widows, duties that are sadly neglected and for a long time were supposed to be con- 
fined to the church. 

There seems to be something in the very nature of men that causes them to love 
secret societies, ceremonies and mystic ritualism. Secret organizatioas have existed in 
all ages, and do not lose their charm with the advance of civilization. There are more 
secret Bocieties now in existence than at any period of the world, and it would seem 
that the men of the Jonathan Blanchard style would go out behind the barn and kick

(Grand Secretary American Legion of Honor.) 

The pioneers of our State, who had the opportunity of knowing what the fraternal 
organizations did for the distressed at that time, were deeply impressed, and as a rule 
have devoted a large portion of their time in fostering and extending their beneficence. 
A striking example of this experience is found in the career of Bro. Burton, who came 
to this State in 1849 from New York, his native State. 

In 1852 he was elected a member of Charity Lodge, No. 6, I. 0. 0. F., at Stockton. 
He soon passed through the Chair of the Lodge as also those of Parker Encampment of 
which he was a Chtticer member, and became both a Past Grand and Past Patriarch. 
He was admitted a Member of the Grand Lodge in 1855 and of the Grand Encampment 
the next year. In 1865 he was elected Grand Master of the State and served one year. 
In 1874 he represented the jurisdiction of California in the Sovereign Grand Lodge which 
met that year at Atlanta, Georgia. 

He is a P. M. W. of Valley Lodge, No. 30, A. 0. U. W. ; and was one of the 
Charter Members of Washington Council, 480, American Legion of Honor, and First 
Commander and one of its representatives at several sessions of the Grand Lodge. He 
has served as Grand Secretary of the American Legion of Honor for several years with 
signal ability, and is now holding that office. He brought to this important ofiScial 
position the varied and ripe experience he had acquired in other orders, and has been 
one of the chief factors in building up this growing order on the Pacific Coast. He la 
also a member of several other fraternal associations. Bro. Burton is in the prime of 
life, surrounded by a very interesting family, one of the stewards of the Central 
Methodist Episcopal Church and an active worker in the Sabbath School, and one of tha 
prominent leaders in fraternal and beneficiary societies. 


The principle of fraternal insurance conducted on the lodge system is a growing 
one ill the United States. It is becoming simply of tremendous magnitude. In the 
past year $25,000,000 have been paid by these societies for death losses. This exceeds 
the amount paid by any five of the leading and stable life insurance companies in this 
country. Tlie magnitude of these figures commands attention. These societies are 
mostly without a reserve fund and depend solely upon the voluntary action of their 
members in making payments. The steady fidelity of the members of the organiza- 
tions to one another in the constant payment of assessments for this vast sum of money 
is a growing guarantee of future life for all such organizations as are rightly managed. 
The leading fraternal societies in the United States have nearly 100,000 members each 
in them and are handling a business equal to the largest life insurance companies. 
^^^lat is to be the future of such associations is a problem, but present indications are 
favorable to much usefulness and public good. The relief to those in need from this 
source at the rate of millions a year are incalculable. The good done cannot be esti- 
mated. This much can be said with simple truth. 

Fraternal Societies may also be considered the nurseries of republicanism, in that 
all meet and mingle on the same level, and mauy here take their first lessons in learn- 
ing to submit gracefully to majority rule. While not attempting to occupy the same 
field as the churches, or in any respect to be considered as supplanters or rivals, they 
yet are accomplishing many desirable things heretofore unaccomplished by tha 
churches. They are teaching a broader philanthrophy, a heartier and warmer brother- 
hood and good fellowship ; and while, as a rule, not requiring specific pledges for tem- 
perance, are indirectly accomplishing great good in that direction, their whole tendency 
being toward temperance and refinement. Indeed, in a few words, the matter may be 
summed up by saying that the whole trend of fraternal societies in this age of the 
world is toward unifying and elevating mankind.

The Order of Druids, primarily, is of Asiatic origin. History speaks of it as an 
Order of priests and learned men among the ancient Celtse — the race of people who left 
the parent hive in Asia at a very early period, and settled in Western Europe. In 
Gaul and Britain (the France and England of to-day), for many centuries preceding 
t(he Christian era, and at the time of the invasion of these countries by the Romans, 
the Druids were the most prominent and powerful Order. They presided over the 
religious celebrations of the people, and were their judges, legislators, philosophers, 
physicians,, and instructors of youth. The Order first assumed its present character in 
England in the year 17S1. The date of its introduction into America has not been 
ascertained, It is supposed to have been introduced about the year 1830, but was not 
permanently established until 1839, when Washington Lodge, No. 1, of New York, wat 


The United Ancient Order of Druids is a moral, social and beneficial society. Iti 
principles and teachings are derired from Ancient Druidism, and are founded on reason 
and sound morality. They do not conflict with any of the established systems ol 
religion, and are perfectly compatible with the peace and welfare of the State. No 
oaths are administered by the Order binding its members to any creed or faction ; in 
becoming Druids they are still free men. Its so-called secrecy is not a cloak for evil, 
but simply a protection against abuse of its beneficial provisions. The Order is firmly 
established in twenty-three States of the American Union, in England, Ireland and 
Scotland, in the British Colonies in America and Australia, and in Germany. Its mem- 
bership is thoroughly cosmopolitan in character. 


Its objects are: To unite men together, irrespective of nation, tongue or creed, for 
mutual protection and improvement; to assist socially and materially, by timely coun- 
sel and instructive lessons, by encouragement in business, by assistance to obtain 
employment when in need; to foster among its members the spirit of fraternity and good 
feVowship; and, by a well-regulated system of dues and benefits, to provide for the 
relief of the sick and destitute, the burial of the dead, and the protection of the widows 
and orphans of its deceased members. 

The government of this Order is vested in the Grand Grove of the United States, 
State Grand Groves and subordinate Groves. The Grand Grove of the United States 
is the head of the Order, with full power to make laws for the government of itself and 
State Grand and Subordinate Groves. 

The motto is Unity, Peace and Concord.

The cosmopolitan character of the people of California is forcibly illustrated in the 
membership of our social, fraternal and beneficiary societies. The occupation and pursuits 
of a majority of our citizens have no relation in a large degree to their trade, profession or 
education. The subject of this sketch is a striking example of the changed condition, in 
his calling and position in the affairs of the body politic, civic, social and fraternal. At an 
early age he went to sea, made voyages to Australia, East Indies, China, California, South 
America, West Indies, Mediterranean and Black seas, studied navigation, became a 
master mariner and was given a certificate as captain and chief engineer by the National 
Board of Navigation of Sweden. At the age of fifty he is a wine and liquor merchant, 
and one of the active, enthusiastic and prominent leaders in our fraternal and bene- 
ficiary societies. He was born in Sweden, April 1, 1839, and attended school at the 
University of Upsala. In 1861 he came by sea "Around the Horn" to California, 
and pleasant associations and prosperous business have changed the roving sailor to a 
landsman, who occupies a leading position socially, politically, and in fraternal society 
afi'airs. By faithful and efficient service he has earned the title of Past Grand, Past 
Chief Patriarch and filled many official positions of trust and honor in the I. 0. O. F. 
He is a P. M. W. of Burns Lodge, 68, A. O. U. W., Past Grand Commander of the 
United Endowment Associates, and for the last three years a member of the Executive 
Committee. He was one of the organizers, and is now President of the Eureka Endow- 
ment Association of California. In the United Ancient Order of Druids he has filled 
all the subordinate official positions, was elected Supreme Representative to the Supreme 
Grove at the session of Chicago in 1886, was made Chairman of the Committee on 
Foreign Relations, and was elected Supreme Herald at the session of the Supreme 
Grove held in St. Paul in 1888. In all of the societies in which he holds membership he 
has received the honors as the chief executive, and his large experience, rectitude and 
ability in fraternal and beneficiary societies make him a trusted leader and a 
sagacious counselor. As a debater and parliamentarian he has few equals, and while he 
seldom indulges in flights of oratory, yet his tenacity of purpose and candor in speech 
make him a formidable champion in debate. His popularity has been gained by his 
disinterested efforts to assist the weak and unfortunate, and they have found in him an 
advocate that dared to fight their battles against popular clamor. He is a man of warm 
and ardent friendships and generous impulses. His nobility of character admits of no 
compromise with wrong, and he is always ready to champion the right and assist the 
weak whenever he can, regardless of aspersion or personal discomfort. 

He is married to a most estimable woman, Miss Florida A. Shaw, daughter of 
Captain Benjamin Shaw, a distinguished family of Baltimore. This union has been 
blessed with five children, one daughter and four sons. 

In business he has been prosperous, as a citizen he is highly respected, especially 
among his associates in the council room or around the festive board, where by wise 
counsel or kindly expressions he has the rare faculty of making every one feel at ease, 
and the lodge room a happy society home. 


It is a common saying that what is everybody's business is nobody's business. In 
every fraternal Order there is a deal of business that falls under this head. It must be 
done, and yet no one feels that he is specially called upon to do it. It usually falls to 
the lot of the willing workers to perform this class of thankless jobs and duties, and 
though a thankless task, they generally do it for the good of the cause without com- 
plaining. For instance, a brother out of employment and in want ; a sick family 
should be visited ; the orphan and widow should be cared for ; it is a golden oppor- 
tunity that every one should be alert to occupy. It is the opportunity when angels 
may be entertained unawares, or bread cast upon the waters that will return in bless- 
ings in the days to come. The worker does not wait to pray or make a report, but 
goes right ahead and does the duty before him. He does it cheerfully, kindly, ten- 
derly, and when it is done does not sound a trumpet in the street, boast of it at the 
next meeting, tell the reporters, and manage to get his name in the papers. It may 
never be known, certainly will not if he has to put it on the bulletin board. He be- 
lieves in not letting his right hand know what the left hand doeth. Verily, he has his

The life of Ueorge W. Lovie illustrates in a marked degree that high type of Ameri- 
can character that our country has developed in her growth, advancement and pros- 
perity. He was born in Maumee City, Ohio, March 4, 1848, and with his heroic mother 
came to California in 1850 to join his father, who had crossed the plains in 1849. His boy- 
hood days were spent in the mining districts of Placer, El Dorado and 1>J evada counties, 
where the self-reliance and hopefulness so characteristic of the time was strongly 
engrafted in his disposition. 

In 18G8 he married an accomplished woman, Maria F., daughter of Mr. 0. S. Hol- 
l)rook, a prominent mining man of Nevada county, and the union has proved an excep- 
tionally happy one. His parents died soon after his marriage, and he at once assumed 
the responsibility of educating and suppoi'ting his brother and sisters (five in nurQl)er), 
devotedly and faithfully. He removed to San Francisco and engaged in the draying busi- 
ness, but not taking kin<lly to city life, he became in 1871 a resident of San Mateo 
county and engaged in farming. His ability as an enterprising citizen was at once 
recognized, and he soon became prominent in county affairs. In 1884 he was elected 
Tax Collector of the county, and moved to Redwood City, the county seat. Having 
served with great success in that office, he was elected in 1886 County Assessor, and 
enjoys the distinction of having received the largest majority ever given any candidate 
for public favor in that county. He is the present incumljent, and is disciiarging the 
duties of that office with signal ability. 

If the subject of this sketch excels as a public officer, he is eminent in his private 
capacity in what is known as a " Society man." He is Chief Engineer of the Redwood 
City Fire Department, P. CI. of Ocean View Lodge, No. 143, I. 0. 0. F., P. C. P. Hope 
Encampment, No. 60, F. S. Rebekah Degree Lodge, No. 48, a)id Orand Sentinel of the 
Grand Encampment, I. 0. 0. F. ; Chairman of the Committee on Credentials, Grand 
Lodge, Knights of Pythias, and Chairman of Committee on Laws and Usages in the 
Great Council of Improved Order of Red Men. He has served on several important 
committees in the Ancient Order United Workmen, and during the past year he was the 
Noble Grand Arch of the United Ancient Order of Druids, visiting every Grove of that 
Order in the State and organizing two new Groves. At the close of his term, in recog- 
nition of his valuable services in behalf of the Order, he was presented by the Grand 
Grove with a handsome gold watch. 

Mr. Lovie is now in the prime of life, and is a man of pleasant address, the key- 
stone of his character is strict integrity, personal honesty and geniality. He is a repre- 
sentative specimen of that class to whom the people must look forward to give credit 
and tone to American politics. He is not an orator, but a man of much magnetic influ- 
ence, and is well calculated to be a leader.

It is one of the most gratifying features of the benevolent, fraternal and beneficiary 
Bocieties of this State, that their membership is recruited from the best men in the 
various occupations of life, and especially among the mercantile class, thrifty mechj*iiica 
and laborers. The subject of this sketch is a highly educated and prominent merchant 
and has much notoriety as a politician. He was born in New Orleans of French parents 
Nov. 24, 1846. When a lad he accompanied his parents to California in 1854, where he 
has resided ever since, with the exception of three and one half years in France where 
he was educated, he having attended the colleges of Paris and Charleville (Ardennes). 
His course was a thorough one and he speaks and writes several languages fluently. In 
1874 he was united in marriage to Miss K. W. Vollmar, a leading family of Kewaskum 
of Wisconsin. The happy results of this union are two lovely daughters and twin sons. 

He was a charter member of Perseverance Grove, No. 10, United Ancient Order of 
Druids, since 1867 (which works in the French language) ; member of Hartnagel 
Supreme Arch Chapter No. 3, United Ancient Order of Druids, and has filled various 
official positions in Subordinate and Grand Groves and is now Noble Grand Arch 
of the Grand Grove of the State of California He is a member of Memorial Lodge, 
No. 174, A. 0. U. W., United Friends of California, and also of the Eureka Endowment 
Association of California. In politics he has been quite active and prominent. He 
was Vice-chairman for two terms from 1881 to 1885 of the Democratic County Committee 
of the City and County of San Francisco and Collector for the State Board of Harbor 
Commissioners for four years commencing in 1883. Fraternity is not a meaningless 
word with him; and benevolent deeds to the unfortunate and distressed have endeared 
him to his fraters, and among those who have known him in the community in which 
he has lived. He is perfectly conversant with the history of the order of Druids from 
its incipiency, and can therefore speak and act intelligently in promoting and advancing 
this growing Society. 

He has a fine address, martial beai-ing, and is an eloquent and brilliant speaker. 
His scholastic attainments, social standing and ripe experience in fraternal orders, 
warrant us in predicting a successful administration as the Chief Executive of the United 
Ancient Order of Druids and a bright future as a leader among men. 


We make the following extract from the report of the committee on Vital Statistics 
presented to the Supreme Lodge A. 0. U. W., 1889. Submitted by Wm. C. Richardson, 

The aggregate result of the compilations of your committee is shown in the 
appended table, and may be summarized as follows:

Combined aggregate 1 , 820, 67 1 21,393 11.7 + 

This summary shows that your committee has worked through the reports of the 
several Societies under consideration, and that the labor covers an array of members 
aggregating 1,820,671, out of which 21,393 or 11.7+ had died. It shows further that 
to have carried $2,000 protection in this grand aggregation would have cost each member 
less than $24 per year, which is certainly as cheap as any one could reasonably ask.

This Order was founded in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1879, by Emi Kennedy and 
associates. It had a rapid growth for a while and especially so in this state. Owing 
to dissentions and distrust of the management of the Supreme Council, a short time 
after the Order was started, about one-half of the Councils of California and Nevada 
seceded and established the Independent Order of Chosen Friends and for several years 
was in the lead in membership on the Pacific Coast. This branch of the Order suspended 
operations about one year ago and is now defunct. Besides the beneficiary feature of 
the Order, which grants a life insurance of from $1,000 to §3,000 payable at death, there 
i i what is known as a disability provision which provides in case of accident, disease or 
permanent disability that deprives a member of the ability to pursue his ordinarj' avoca- 
tions; on proper proof establishing what is termed Total Disability; one-half of the 
amount named in the heneficiar}' certifiate is made payable to the beneficiary during his 
or her lifetime. Both sexes are admitted on equal terms of responsibility and benefits. 
It also provides that the beneficiary maj' receive amount of insurance on life at the age 
of 75 years. 

This Order has been established in 30 states and has a membership of 40,000: Calif- 
ornia jurisdiction having one-fifth of the whole about 8,000 members. As its name 
indicates there seems to be a close friendship existing among the members and those who 
are fostering and promoting this Order have a strong and abiding faith that will grow 
in proportion and usefulue.3 =.

Co-operative associations, beneticiary and fraternal orders have enlisted the best 
efforts of a large number of our prominent professional men, artisans and capitalists. 

Among these the subject of our sketch has gained popularity and has the confidence 
of his associates and co-workers iu the numeroiis beneticiary organizations of which he 
is a member. He was born in Scotland in 1863, and was schooled in the rough rugged 
elements surrounding life in his mountainous home. His early life was one of industry 
and close application to industrial pursuits. His education was thorough and he com- 
menced his chosen occupation at the age of fourteen years, that of a designer and 
engraver on wood. Following the custom of his native land lie served an apprentice- 
ship of seven years under systematic and able instructors — a judicious training that 
has enaljled him in a large measure to attain the leading position he now occupies in 
his profession. 

He came to California in 1884 and after a short period spent in Los Angeles settled 
in San Francisco and is now the proprietor of the Acme Engraving Company. 

He is a leading member of Golden State Lodge, No. 7495, Independent Order of 
Foresters of America, and Golden Fleece Lodge, No. 11, Royal Argosy. In the Order 
of Chosen Friends he has been active, energetic and is recognized as one of the sagacious 
leaders of this growing order. He joined Eclectic Council No. 55, O. C. F., in 1866 
passed through all the official stations and now holds the title of Past Chief Councillor. 
He is married to a gifted and estimable woman and his marital relations have been most 
happy. Brother Cunningham is in the prime and vigor of manhood, has a pleasing 
address and has a bright future as a skilled artisan. 

He has a kind and sympathizing disposition, and a great benevolent heart that i» 
quickened at the call of suffering humanity. His own experience and struggles in the 
battle of life have intensified and crystallized his benevolent nature, so that in these 
raternal societies he has found a field where labor is recreation and suflfering humanity 
has enlisted a leader whose arduous toil sweetens life.

Note. — Name of place is omitted only when same name as the Grange. 

Patron and Agriculturist Official Organ published monthly by indorsement and 
under editorial direction of the California State Grange, through its Executive Com- 
mittee, A. T. Dewey, Secretary of State Grange of California, 220 Market Street, Saa 
Francisco, Manager. 

The Patrons of Husbandry are making efforts to educate the farmers into the idea 
of co-operation. Theirs is a hard task. The farmer is isolated. He has to labor con- 
tinuously, and opportunities to mingle with his fellows and concoct plan3 of co-opera- 
tion are few and far between. What is worse, this state of afifairs has continued so long 
that it has become a chronic habit. 


In this busy, practical age, men are not inclined to hang around empty sepulchres 
and feed on the straw of ancient threshing-floors. The utility of an Order does not 
depend upon its history, traditions, pomp and ceremony, or fine halls, butonthe malleable 
able and marvelous adaptation to the institution to bring men into social accord, waken 
fraternal sympathies, and help the distressed and needy without inflicting the sense of 
shame and humiliation. The embodiment of this idea will attract the attention of earnest, 
practical men, and they are the only ones worth attracting. Those wlio distrust the 
utility of the A. O. U. W. and kindred Orders are those who have insurance axes of 
another kind to grind, or who stand aloof from the centers of relief and protection, and 
know nothing of the mighty stream of charity and benevolence silently flowing past 
thousands of homes, and schools where orphans are educated. The Order is not inclined 
to chalk its good deeds on bulletin boards. It does not sound a trumpet when it carries 
a blessing to a home. 

It may be true that fraternity, as now organized, has its shortcomings; that it fails 
to do as much good as it could; that many of the Orders travel along far behind their 
ideal; but there is no pith or relevancy in sucli objections. The same may be alleged 
against every church, school, college or other charitable association in the land. 
Indeed, this sort of grim pessimism, born of dyspepsia or a bad liver, would topple 
down the entire fabric of government because it had failed to extinguish all forms of 
crime and vice, and solve the problem how the lazy and shiftless might get along with- 
out work. The fraternal sentiment is too well organized, cheers and blessei too many 
hearts and has made life sweet and beautiful to too many thousands, to become even 
for a moment an object of criticism, because a few cold, prosaic and natural 
anarchical natures can see no good in wearing its badges and mustering under its

Past Master of the State Grange of Cal. 



The subject of this sketch was born at Wilkinsburg, Alleghany county, Pennsyl- 
vania, eight miles from the city of Pittsburg. His father was a farmer, and also oper- 
ated a country mill, and the young man early acquired a familiarity with the details of 
these occupations, and assisted in them in his daily M'ork. He found time to attend 
school in winter, and grew so fond of his books, a strong desire developed for education 
on a broader scale. In the public schools, and subsequently in the Wilkinsburg 
Acadeuiy, he acquired an excellent and thorough education, and at the age of eighteen 
he commenced teaching school. 

The desire for a liroad, general education was strong within him, but his circum- 
stances were not such as to enable him to lay out any considerable sum to attend school, 
and his wish was to secure money enough in some way to increase his education. While 
he was thus teaching and v.-ishing, the California excitement .spread over the country. 
A party of 300 was made up at Pittsburg to come to California. Mr. Johnston joined 
the party, pr(imi)ted by the desire to rapidly acquire the means of getting a better 
education. He had no special profes-sion in view, Init was impressed with the feeling 
that with a thorough education he would 1)e fitted for any occupation upon which he 
micht enter. On March 14, 1849, the party left Pittsbursr, and journeyed by steam- 
boat along the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri rivers to 8t. Joseph, Mo. Here the emi- 
grant train was made up. i\Ir. Johnston took charge of a team and drove it through to 
Sacramento, where he arrived on the 26th of Augnst, 1849. The party were mostly 
gold hunters, and on arrival here separated in every direction. Mr. Johnston looked 
for work, and accepting the first that offered, carried adobe l)rick to build the old 
United States Bakery. He worked at this imtil the building was completed, and saved 
money enough to take him to the mines. He went to El Dorado county and engaged in 
mininc. At the end of a year he abandoned mining, and with an accumulation of aljout 
$500 came to Sacramento in September, 18.50, and bought out a squatter's title to IGO 
acres of land located near what is now Richland. For this he paid.S400, the remainder 
of his money l)eing reserved for working capital and to provide food, while he developed 
hi; land. He here entered upon farming, to which ho has chiefly devoted his attention 

Upon this land he commenced l)y planting potatoes, watermelons and other vege- 
tables aud iruits. Tliere was a good market iii Sacramento, where he realized good 
profits in cash, and gradually his means grew. As they did, he extended his opera- 
tions into general farming, and from time to time purchased more land. He still 
dreamed of returning to the East when he should hav'e accumulated a fortune, and 
worked on, living alone on his farm, which was decidedly lonesome in those days. 
Gradually, however, he became attaclied to his new home, and thought less of leaving 
it. In 1854 he finally gave up his old dreams, determined to make a home here, and 
married Miss Elizabeth S. Hite, an accomplished lady from Ohio. His farming enter- 
prises grew and j)ro.spered. He now owns in that vicinity over 1,800 acres of as fine 
farming land as may be found in the State, in which is included his original IGO acres 
acquired in 1850, a portion of which adjoins the town of Richland. 

Mr. Johnston lives here with his family — his wife and three children, two girls and 
a boy — who make the old homestead more bright and cheerful than when he worked 
alone there thirty-five years ago. The dairy is looked after by his son, while his 
youngest daughter, who is a graduate of the Sacramento Business College, is his 
book-keeper and secretary, his various enterprises and investments rendering such an 
assistant a necessity. Since coming here in 1849 he has been a firm advocate of the 
importance of the Sacramento valley, and of the great future in store for this county 
and city. He has been an active and intelligent laborer in developing their interests, 
having given much time, money and labor to the public good, and been prominent in 
all public enterprises. 

He is an enthusiastic Granger, and charter member of Franklin Grange, founded 
here in 1873, has been Master of his Grange, and Grand Master of the State Grange 
from 1885 to 1887. He has twice journeyed to the East to represent the California 
State Grange at the National Grange; once to Boston and once to Philadelphia. He

is President of the Grangers' Co-operative Business Association, a position he has held 
for the past five years; has been a Director and Vice-President of the People's Sav- 
ings Bank since its organization, and is at present Grand Junior Warden of the 
Grand Lodge, F. cind A. M. 

He was elected to the Assembly in 1870, where he served two years, and to the 
Senate in 1879, being for two years president -pro tern, of that body. He also served as 
member of the State Board of Equalization in 1883. In all his public life he has been 
an intelligent and earnest advocate of Republican principles, and not a blind parti- 
san, and has won the respect and esteem of the entire community, which ho faith- 
fully represented. 

He has been seventeen times across the Continent, often for purposes of pleasure, 
sometimes in connection with business interests, and twice as the representative of 
bodies with which he is connected. 

He has found the fortune for which he came, and has always shown his earnest 
appreciation of education in a hearty support of all measures calculated- to strengthen 
the educational institutions in this community, a characteristic of those earnest, prac- 
tical men who came in '49, who have raised the reputation of the State for fine schools, 
as high as that for fine fruit and grain. See page 279. 

Speculative Masonry embraces a wide range of liuman science, but its elements 
are circumscribed within a compass which are attainable by every brother who pos- 
sesses moderate abilities and common industry. Its evidences, doctrines and tradi- 
tions are within his reach, and without a competent knowledge of these leading princi- 
ples — which form the horn-book of Masonry — -he will stumble at the threshold and 
never attain a right understanding of the design or utility of tlie Order, although his 
initiation may have been regular and the landmarks carefully and correctly communi- 
cated. — Oliner. 

It is a curious fact, considering the hostility of tne Roman Catholic Church to 
Masonry, that it was a Catholic who largely aided in its introduction into America. 
We refer to Anthony Browne, Sixth Viscount Montague, who was Grand Master in 
England in 1733, and l)y whose authority Henry Price was appointed Grand Master of 
Massachusetts. LonI Montague was born in 1686, and died in 1767. His family was 
one of the oldest in England, his great-grandfather having been a brotlier of the Earl of 
Warwick, the "'King Maker," and who was slain in 1471. As the family was strict 
Romanists, Lord Montague was never permitted to sit in the House of Peers, and suf- 
fered other penalties for his conscience sake. As he recognized in Masonry the great 
lever of toleration, he spai-ed neither time nor treasure in propagating its tenets, as he 
foresaw that it would do what it has done, namely, secure to the Church toleration in 
England, which it is beginning to secure other i-eligious forms in Roman countries. 

Hon. Chauncey M. Depevv said in an address delivered before Kane Lodge, No. 
454, New York city, on the occasionof their thirteenth anniversary: "It is an extraordi- 
nary tribute to American Masonry that fifty-two of the signers of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence out of the fifty-five could have formed a Lodge, and that all the Major-Gen- 
erals in the Army of the Revolution were bound by the mystic tie. One was expelled from 
the Order, but his infamy and its punishment has given more brilliant and permanent 
fame to the virtues of the rest. The unknown grave and the execrated memory of 
Benedict Arnold serve by contrast to exalt to nobler and grander heights the pure 
Masonic patriotism of George Washington. It appears, from the records of King Sol- 
omon Lodge of Poughkeepsie, that from 1771 Benedict Arnold was a frequent visitor. 
In 1781 I found this remarkable entry: 'Ordered that the name of Benedict Arnold be 
considered obliterated from the minutes of this Lodge; a traitor.' There is no more 
interesting relic in the archives of our Order than this mutilated record."

The Society of the Sons of Revolutionary Sires organized in San Francisco in 1876, 
and since been in continuous and successful operation, has grown into a National 
Society now styled Society of Sons of the American Revolution. 

Any person who is descended from an ancestor that assisted, while acting in any of 
the following capacities, in establishing American Independence during the war of the 
Revolution, can become a member of the Society by communicating with the California 
Society of San Francisco. 

A military or a naval officer, a soldier or a sailor. 

An official in the service of any one of the Thirteen Original States or Colonies. 

An official in the service of the United States or colonies. ■ 

A recognized patriot who rendered material service to the cause of Independence. 

The Society of the Sons of American Revolution rests on a wider basis than military 
rank and service. Pen and voice may be as useful to Liberty as the sword. By essay 
and oration Henry, Adams, and Jefiferson accomplished as much for their country as 
Gates or Green, or Putnam by the most brilliant exploits of battle. Washington as 
Commander was no more a patriot and benefactor than Washington as President. Nor 
must the heroes of the ranks be overlooked. Descendants of the sailor, soldier, and 
civilian are recognized by the Society. Membership is based on proved patriotic service, 
however and wlienever rendered during the war of the Revolution. 

This Society will grow out of the past of our country, so it may become a potent 
element in the future. 

Nor should the Sons of the American Revolution forget that from the beginning 
they had a mingled Ijlood. New England was moulded by British Puritans. The Dutch 
controlled New York. Quakers and Germauj settled Pennsylvania. English Catholics 
largely shaped Maryland. Swedes prevailed in Delaware. Virginia boasted of cavalier 
and churchman The Scotch and Scotch-Irish immigrated extensively into New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Virginia and the Carolinas. Florida was long the home of the Spaniard. 
In Louisiana, French and Creoles were numerous. Huguenots leavened our whole 
Republic. Our manhood grew from mixed nationalities. Side by side their represent- 
atives foucht in the Revolution, and side by side evolved the Constitution. To hide 
theie facts is to be ashamed of ourselves. Origin creates our sympathy for humanity. 
Hence in Americans these prophecies of universal liberty. We do not fear that immi- 
grant nations will cloud or exhaust our sun. Rather we believe that they will 
dififuse the light until it circles the world. As statesmen we may wisely provide against 
an overwhelming flood of paupers, criminals and adventurers. But as citizens and 
Christians we will welcome opportunities of moulding to republicanism and religion 
those who will Ijc heralds of truth and apostles of millennium. 

While by sea and land civic and military pageants made our Centennial memorable, 
a few citizens assembled in a historic place in our great commercial metropolis. Amid 
the huzzas of the multitude, the roar of tlie cannon, and the magnificence of display 
these gentlemen elaborated the Constitution of the Society of the Sons of the American 
Revolution. Its birthplace was the long room in Fraunce's Tavern and its birthday 
our Centennial. By past and present it is thus made interesting and illustrious. May 
it kindle nevv hopes in nations! May it dififuse light over our race! May it worthily 
express the geniuj of the American people! May it advance the coming universal day! 
Wherever on earth a man wears the badge of the Sons of the American Revolution we 
will clasp his hand and welcome him as a worker for humanity. 

On an island of New York harbor towers a monument which expresses the genius 
of our country . Liberty looks out over the ocean while grasping a torch to enlighten 
the world. No frown on her face drives back the nations. Those majestic feaiufea 
smile welcome on all who, l)y virtue and labor, seek homes and citizenship. Let such 
dwell beneath her shadow, and to such let our Society extend sympathy. But we may 
learn other lessons. These are well expressed by the eloquent Governor Gordon, of 
Qeorgia, in his Centennial address:

"If I may be permitted a figure drawn from the Statute of Liberty, whose uplifted 
flame lights your incomparable harbor, I will say that upon this Centennial occasion we 
should build a political lighthouse grounded on the rock of the Constitution, cemented 
in sectional and mutual confidence, to throw its light over land and sea, that we may 
view and avoid the reefs upon which the happiness of people and the stability of nationa 
are stranded, wrecked, and lost— a political lighthouse, whose quenchless flame shall not 
only serve to guide the American people to all political truth, to the basis of real unity, 
but shall also guide the struggling millions of the world in their onward march to

The subject of life insurance, co-operative or mutual, insurance annuities, and life 
endowment has received during the last ten years more attention than at any time in 
the history of our country. The suljject of this sketch was born November 20, 1843 
and is a descendant from a very wealthy family of Leipsic, Germany, and this being 
a great commercial and moneyed center, a large numljer of the leading citizens become 
financiers by education and the environments of such a locality. He had received a 
very lil^eral and thorougli education in his native city, Leipsic, Germany, traveled 
extensively over the continent of Europe, and emigrated to San Francisco in 1877. His 
early lessons in msnetary affairs made him a ready supporter and earnest worker 
in a number of our beneuciary Orders. In the years 1887 he took an active part 
in the Order of United Endowment Associates, served as District Deputy at large and 
Chairman of Committee on Appeals and Grievances, and during the year organized two 
new lodges. To this subject he gave much thought, and evolved the idea to pay 
endowments during lifetime of a member, and drew up plans for a new Endowment 
Society, the main feature of which was to be the payment of coupons exclusively at 
maturity, whether the beneficiary was living or not. A medical examination was not 
required, and consequently the privilege of persons in poor health was equal to the most 
robust. Tlie honor belongs to Mr. Lueder.T of being the originator of this plan or new 
feature of endowment, which has many supporters, and in connection therewith, he 
with a few associates founded the Pacific Endowment League on March 8, 1888. 

The difficulty of imiting in lodges the members of a new society on account of 
their affiliation with older Orders was his reason to establish it on tiie open plan and 
thereby to concentrate the whole into one general office with agencies in places outside 
of San Francisco. In order to devote all his time and energy to the interests of the 
League, he accepted the office of Secretary, and i.i universally respected for his integ- 
rity and the efficiency with which he manages the affairs of this prosperous and grow- 
ing society. 

He is a member of the A. O. U. W., K. of P., U. E. A., A. L. of H. and other 
fraternal and beneficiary ortlers. He is a methodical m.-in and a painstaker, and would 
lor that reason be classed by Carlyle as a " genius." He has a clear insight and gen- 
eral comprehension of things, which enables him to do the proper thing at the proper 
time. In all society letters he is a master of the situation. You can hardly conceive a 
mind better fitted for the numerous emergencies that arise in the fraternal organiza- 
tions than that of the genial frater, J. Alfred Lucders.

Treasurer Pacific Endowment League 
Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge, United Endowment Associates 



There never has been a time recorded when organized societies for charity were aa 
Qumerous as at the present time. There never has been a period in the history of our 
own country when fraternal and beneficiary orders assumed as much importance and 
occupied the attention of the people and especially the men in the better class of 
society. This symtematized benevolence and widespread benefits are maintained by 
monthly payments of small sums of money, but which in course of time create a vast 
fund. The custodians of the moneys belonging to our wards and beneficiaries are 
selected with a view to character, reliability and fitness. 

In the front rank as "Keeper of Finance" is the subject of our sketch, who 
occupies the position of Grand Treasurer in a greater number of fraternal and bene- 
ficiary Orders than any one man in the State. In 1852, ab the age of seven years, ha 
emigrated to this State. He was educated at our public schools, and received a 
thorough and reliable commercial education. He has held the position of bank teller 
in five difiFerent banks, and is now engaged as such in the Anglo Californian Bank, one 
of the largest on the Pacific Coast. He is a member of California, No. 1, F. and 
A. M.; Past Master Workman of Fidelity, No. 13G, A. O. U. W. ; and Treasurer and 
Director of the Workman's Guarantee Fund. He is also a member of Templar Lodge, 
No. 17,1.0. 0, F. Atthcformation of theGrandLodge UnitedEndowment Associates, 
in ISSi he was elected Grand Treasurer, and is the present incumbent. He is Treasurer 
of the Pacific Endowment League and Supremo Treasurer Order of the Golden Shore. 
He ij alsocustodian for the funds of several benevolent organizations, and trustee for 
a larga number of minors and individuals. 

Brother Belden is a fine type of an American banker, courteous, affable and inflex- 
ible in following a rule of action that is just and liberal. His position and connection 
with our largest banking institutions has enabled him on divers occasions to grant 
accommodation to our wards and beneficiaries that was fraternal generosity. Our 
engraving is a striking likeness of one of our prominent society men, who has done 
signal service in building up several of our leading humanitarian societies. See page 287. 


An Eastern paper gives notice that there is a movement on foot to hold a conven- 
tion to stop the spread of and crush out secret societies. It is the same set of reverend 
Silurians that met in Chicago two years ago and resolved to put an extinguisher on Free- 
masonry. Wo are sorry for these dear people, for they are badly out of joint with the 
age. They arc trying, like good Mrs. Partington, to hold back the waves of the ocean 
with a mop. 

Freemasonry, the head and front or all the fraternities, and the Order that gives 
these dear, simple-minded people so nmch trouble, has quite a history for tough endur- 
ance. It has come down the path of the ages through fire and dungeons, it has 
survived the Morgan cyclone, the Richardson exposure, the ire of political parties, and 
the bark and bite of such dofy-matists as Blanchard and his gang, and never seemed so 
perfectly healthy. More than that, the age seems to be propitious for secret societies. 
A host of fraternities has sprung up around Masonry, as a forest around a giant oak. 
Besides, the principle of secrecy pervades our schools and colleges, and educational and 
literary societies are guarded by cabalistic signs, grips and passwords. The charm of 
home is the secret privacy of its love and companionship. Even business has its 
secrets ; its cipher language. 

Speaking of this matter the other day to a gentleman who belongs to a church that 
inhibits secret societies, he said it was not so much the principle of secrecy they 
objected to as the terrible vows the Masons exacted of every candidate. We replied 
they were not half so formidable as the ordination vows of most of the clergy. Right 
here in this immense universe, where no lead has touched bottom, in an age of ceaseless 
unfoldment, there are men who have solemnly promised to spend their lives in a grotto 
of the middle ages. But we have no time to waste on these decayed but well-meaning 
people. They should kindly be sent to the home for the feeble-minded.

President of Pacific Endowment League 



The subject of this sketch was born in the State of Maine, September 30, 1832. 
He prepared for college at Hampden Academy, and was admitted at Bowdoin College 
in 1852, but through the persuasions of friends withdrew, and entered upon the study 
of the law in the office of Hon. Hannibal Hamlin at Hampshire, where he pursued his 
studies for about one year, and then removed to Bangor, at which place he prepared 
himself for admission to the Supreme Judicial Court in the office of the late Hon. John 
E. Godfrey, for many years Judge of the Probate Court of Penobscot county. Imme- 
diately after his admission to practice, in 1855, he determined to try his future in Cali- 
fornia, and, landing in San Francisco on the first day of January, 1856, proceeded at 
once to the mining county of Amador, when he was elected a member of the Board of 
Supervisors in the fall of 1856, and District Attorney in 1858 by the Douglas Democ- 
racy. He was very active in the formation of the Union Party in Amador, and was 
Chairman of its first County Central Committee, and ran as its candidate for the 
Assembly in 1862, but was defeated with the entire ticket — he requiring twenty-nine 
more votes to elect him. In the Fall of 1862 he married Miss M. J. Tiel of Jackson, 
and removed to the adjoining county of Calaveras, where he was elected District 
Attorney in the following year and re-elected in 1865 to a second term. In tlie spring 
of 1869 he took up his residence in Sacramento, where he pursued the practice of his 
profession for four years and then removed to San Francisco, where he has ever since 
continued the practice of the law, being for a time Assistant District Attorney under 
Hon D. J. Murphy. He was candidate at large on the straight Republican ticket for 
the late Constitutional Convention, but suffered defeat with the whole ticket. . 

Mr. Severance has, besides his legal labors, given some attention to literary work, 
and for a time was editor of the Amador Lechjer, and was editor and proprietor of the 
San Andreas Register. He has written several poems, which have appeared in the 
periodicals, and has on numerous occasions composed and read poems at public celebra- 

Early in the history of fraternal societies Mr. Severance took an active part, and 
has continued to labor for the building up of these institutions — notably the A. O. U. W. 
and Knights of Honor. Passing the chairs several years ago, he has been a member of 
the Grand Lodge of the A. O. U. \V. every year for the past nine years, seven of which 
he has been a member of its most important committees — five years on Committee on 
Appeals and two years on Laws. As Chairman of the Committee on Appeals his deci- 
sions have been sustained without exception, and many of them embraced questions of 
great legal technicality involving important rights, without the advantage of precedent 
in the crude state of new fraternal principles of law. He is now a member of the Com- 
mittee on Appeals. He is also a member of the Grand Lodge of the Knights of Honor, 
and has several times .'jerved on the Committee on Laws of that Body. He was made 
a Master Mason before leaving his native State, but has never affiiliated in California. 
With other enterprising citizens of San Francisco he assisted in forming the Pacific 
Endowment League, in the success of which, as its President, he takes a deep interest, 
believing that co-operative insurance is the best method of providing for the future, 
and the cheapest to the insured. 

He is a fluent, eloquent and forcible speaker; courteous and aff'able to all classes; 
a steadfast friend, given to large hosi^itality, and very popular. Fraternity is not a 
meaningless word with him; and benevolent deeds to the unfortunate and distressed 
have endeared him to his fraters, and among those whom have known him in the com- 
munity in which has lived. 

He is a fine specimen of physical and mental manhood, and stands at the head of 
the bar as one of the ablest lawyers on the Pacific Coast. Although he has a large and 
lucrative practice he finds time to attend to fraternal organizations, and almost from 
the commencement of Society life he has been called upon to deliver public addresses 
on all important occasions. See page 289.

The Order of United Endowment Associates was organized in Napa, Cal. , August 
23, 1884, its objects being a fraternal co-operative Order, life and endowment benefit 
paying, from assessments levied on its member of both sexes as needed, and according

or $5,000 as the member requests in his application. IJut one certificate can be held by 
each member; and as each of the eight coupons attached to each certificate, equal in 
amount to one-eighth of the whole amount of said Endowment Certificate, mature (the 
maturity time on which is one-eighth of the expectancy ascertained by deducting the 
actual age of member at time of initiation from 75 years, and which time must success- 
ively elapse between coupons and the member continue in good standing) the same ia 
paid on presentation and surrender of coupon properly indorsed, and in case of death of 
a member before 75 years of age (at which time all tlie eight coupons of said member 
will have been paid) the nominees of said member are paid the next maturing coupon 
after said member's death, on surrender of the Endowment Certificate properly indorsed.

J. W. WARD, Jr. 
Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge, United Endowment Associates 


J. W. WARD, JR. 

In character, life and career of Brother Ward, we see a fine tj-pe of a pro- 
gressive American citizen. Educated in the Boston .English High School, under the 
instruction of Prof. Thomas Sherwin, he has been farmer, merchant, County Clerk of 
Napa county, and is now a lawyer. As Grand Commander for three years and Grand 
Secretary two years of the live year.j of existence of the United Endowment Associ- 
ates, wliich order he formed and laid the foundation for, drafting the literature and laws 
thereof, and supervising and carefully watching its onward progress, which was mar- 
velous in its inception and successful in its growth and in performing all that was 
anticipated of it, he is perhaps Ijetter known at present. He was their first executive 
officer, prepared the ritual, and in fact carried the order on his shoulders for the first 
two years. He wa.i the discoverer and founder of the United Endowment Associates, 
and by his tact, ability, and arduous labor in behalf of this growing organization it 
bids fair to grow in numbers far Ijeyond many of the older orders. The growth and 
development of the United Endowment Associates have been his especial pride, and to 
which, although- in actual practice as an attorney at law, he has devoted a great deal 
of time and labor. Formerly a member of Napa Lodge, No. 1, he has since his residence 
in Oakland affiliated witli Lodge No. 7. 

The subject of this sketch is also a Past Grand in University Lodge, No. 144, I. 0. 
0. F., a Past Master Workman of Pacific Lodge, No. 7, A. O. U. W., and Past Com- 
mander of Oakland Legion, l^o. 3, S. K. A. O. U. W., all of Oakland, and a Past Grand 
Dictator of the K. of H., his membership boing in Napa Lod^e 1S97. When Grand 
Dictator of the K. of H. of California his eaiacst efforts and zeal were made apparent 
in that Order, since the membership at the close of his term (it being a critical time, 
just after the passage of the suicide law) showed the highest numerically at any tima 
since, in the history of that Order in tliis State. 

Brother Ward is one of the Committees on Laws and Supervision in three fraternal 
grand bodies in this State, namely, the K. of H., Select Knights A. 0. U. W., and 
A. O. U. W., and in the latter Order he was one of the committee appointed in San Fran- 
cisco in 1S7S, to draft the first laws of said Grand Lodge, and his able work with others 
of that committee was in a great measure adopted, and which code stands to-day very 
little changed in the fundamental laws of that powerful organization. 

He is a man of candor, possessing the confidence of those who know him best, 
esteem him the highest, and is well calculated to hold out well in all his undertakings. 
See page 293. 

J. L. McKEE. 

Within the last decade more attention and thought has been given to co-operative, 
fraternal and beneficiary societies than at any time in the memory of man. Students, 
financiers, and our leading citizens have given this siibject much study and time in 
promoting and fostering them. The subject of this sketch is the son of the late J. M. 
McKee, a man well and favorably known in business circles, and a leader in moral 
reforms and the promotion of religion. Brother J. L. McKee is a native of Middle- 
town, Connecticut, and arrived on the Pacific coast in 1853. He was the founder, and 
has been and is now the Secretary, of the Safety Endowment Union, one of the most 
popular endowment associations in this State. 

Brother McKee is a member of Hercules Lodge, A. 0. U. W. , P. D. Far West 
Lodge K. of H., P. C. Golden West Council A. L. of H., Past Grand Commander U. E. 
A., P. C, Pacific Lodge, L. 0. W., P. P. Hamilton Lodge, V^.. A., and has filled every 
position in the various lodges, and served from five to eight years in the financial posi- 
tions of the lodges, and is considered an expert in the keeping of lodge accounts, and 
has gotten up several improved forms of account books which have met with general 

For the past five years he has made a study of endowments, and is considered to 
have a thorough knowledge of both fraternal and endowment insurance, and his advice 
and opinion are sought by all classes.

A Fraternal Order That Provides for its Members During Lifetime and Pats 

Benefits to the Nominees of Deceased Members. 

Incobpoeated Sept. 8, 1885. 


The objects of this Order are to improve the moral, intellectual and social condition 
of its members, and to protect them, to a great extent, against pecuniary want during 
lifetime, and at death to make provision for their families, or such persons as they may 


The Grand Lodge is composed of its officers, duly elected, Standing Committees 
and Representatives from Subordinate Lodges, and holds annual sessions. From this 
body emanate all laws for the government of the Order; and, subject to the laws, it 
controls the funds. 

Subordinate Lodges act as custodians of the Special Benefit and Beneficiary 
moneys until called by the officers of the Grand Lodge; they have charge of the admin- 
istration of their local affairs with power to accept or reject those who may apply for 


Any person of good moral character and socially acceptable is eligible for member- 
ehip in a Lodge. 


1st. A. Special Benefit Members of First Series, contributing to the Special Bene- 
fit Fund and holding Certificates, with coupons attached, payable to the member at 
stated periods during life, and in case of death, one coupon being payable to the mem- 
ber's nominee. 

B. Special Benefit Members of Second Series, contributing to Special Benefit 
Fund and holding certificates with ten coupons attached, payable as they mature, to 
the member if living, or, if dead, to his nominee. 

(Several Special Benefit Certificates will be issued to a member, as hereinafter stated, 
without extra dues.) 

2d. Beneficiary Members, contributing to the Beneficiar}' Fund, and holding 
Beneficiary Certificates, payable only at death to nominees to be named. 

Membership in tlie Special Benefit Class does not affect membership in the Benefi- 
ciary Class, nor can the funds of either of said two first classes be used for the payment 
of claims against the other. 

Special Benefit Certificates of the First Series are divided into six classes, viz: 
Class I, $1,000; Class 2, §2,000; Class 3, §3,000; Class 4, S4,000; Class 5, §5,000; 
Class 6, 86,000. Ten coupons being attached to each Certificate except to persona 
over fifty years of age, when coupons will be attached as follows: 

Age 51 8 Coupons. 

" 52 8 

" 53 7 

" 54 6 

Certificates of this series will be issued to members of sound bodily health, between 
the ages of 15 and 55 years. 

Special Benefit Certificates of the Second Series are divided into six classes of like 
amounts as those of the First Series, and will be issued to members of any age over 15 
years. Ten coupons will be attached to each Certificate irrespective of age. 

Coupons of the Second Series issued to members 50 years of age or under matura 
the same as those of the first series. 

Beneficiary Certificates are divided into three classes, viz: Class 1, $1,000; Class 
2, §2,000; Class 3, §3,000. Beneficiary rates will be governed by the table set forth in 
the Constitution. ^ 

GRANDMA'S DELIGHT! Blended Japan Tea, in canisters only. Retails everywhere at 
50 cents per lb. Mau, Sadler & Co., 9 to 1.5 Beale Street, San Francisco. 


Do not overlook the fact that no medical examination will be required of applicants 
for Special Benefit Certificates of the Second Series. In the event of the death of the 
holder of this character of Certificate his nominee substantially succeeds to the 
rights of the member, continues payments until maturity of coupons, and draws the 
full amount. 

A member may hold as many Special Benefit Certificates of either or both series 
at the same time as he desires, not exceeding $G,000 in amount, and when ho has 
held certificates amounting to $6,000 for a year, he may take out certificates for 
$6,000 or more, but the certificates of either series must not exceed $6,000 in 
amount, although the aggregate may be $12,000. 

No additional dues or initiation fees are charged for additional Certificates. 


This Order provides for two Funds, which are held in trust for the membership, 
and are kept distinctly separate from each other. 

1st. The Special Benefit Fund, derived from assessments paid by Special 
Benefit Members, can only be used for the payment of coupons to mature to nominees 
of deceased. Special Benefit Members, the balance being placed at interest in approved 
Savings Banks in this city to the credit of the Grand Lodge, and not subject to the 
control of the Grand Treasurer, or any other one officer, and kept on deposit until 
required to meet maturing coupons of the living. Special Benefit members. The feature 
of thus creating and maintaining a Reserve Fund has been highly commended ; not 
only by our own members, but by the puljlic generally. This course not only assures 
the payment of coupons when they become due, but also precludes the probability of 
over-assessing the membership of this fund in any one month, even when the 
maturities are the heaviest. If the business man will consider for a moment, he will 
see the advantage and necessity, in the long run, of this feature. , It has l)een said con- 
cerning it : " It is the one characteristic of the Legion of the West which looms up 
above all others, and holds out the assurance of prosperity and permanency. " 

There is now upwards of $36,000 in this fund, and the amount is rapidly increas- 

2d. The Beneficiary Fund is derived from assessments paid by beneficiary mem- 
bers, and used in the payment to the nominees of deceased beneficiary members of the 
amount to become due under their certificates. Neither fund is liable for the obliga- 
tions of the other; each taxes its own membership, ixnd each pays its own indebtedness. 


The officers who have the handling of any funds of this Order are under good and 
Bufficient bonds, secured by guarantee companies. 

Only six special benefit assessments a year at present. 

The last session of the Grand Lodge fixed the maxinmm number of assessments for 
the year , commencing September 1, 1888, at six. No contingency can arise by which, 
a greater number can be levied during that time. 

The plan of paying endowments during life is no longer an experiment, and is 
rapidly growing in public favor. The entire cost of carrying a special benefit certifi- 
cate is very small compared with the benefits derived. By making the small contribu- 
tions from time to time, when required, a person will, on a certain day, come into the 
possession of an amount, when perhaps most needed, or which, when received and. 
judiciously invested, may be the foundation of a comparative fortune.

In all new countries, the merchant who furnishes supplies to the emigrant and 
settler is, in a large degree, the agent or middleman between capitalist and consumer. 
His relation as such gives him unusual facilities to see the stern realities of life, and to 
realize the necessity of mutual co-operation, forbearance and systemetized protection, 
as far as possible, in any fraternal and beneficiary societies. The subject of this sketch, 
a leading merchant for twenty years and manager of the wholesale provision firm of 
Martin, Feusier & Co. of this city for the last ten years, has given the subject of life 
insurance, life endowment and co-operative associations much thought and careful con- 
eideration. In the formation of the Legion of the West the routine or endowment 
feature of this order was carefully prepared, including the life tables by Mr. Feusier, 
and it is generally conceded that to him belongs the honor of this popular policy. 

He is of French descent, a native of Brooklyn, New York, where he was born in 

The family moved to Massillon, Ohio, in 1837, where he remained until he reached 
hia twentieth year, when he embarked for California, arriving in 1855. His father was 
a leading merchant in Ohio when the California gold fever commenced, when he emi- 
grated to this State, engaged extensively in merchandising in San Francisco and was a 
member of the California Pioneers. 

Mining engaged his attention for a few years, when he returned to the occupation 
of a merchant, and carried on an extensive business in Virginia City, Nevada, for a 
number of years. Although he has not been prominent in politics, yet during tlie 
memorable canvass in Nevada in 1868, at the first election of General Grant, his 
influence turned the tide in Storey county which resulted in the election of Senator 
Stewart to the United States Senate. At the session of the first Grand Lodge of the 
Legion of the West he was elected Grand Secretary, and has been re-elected each 
session since. He is a prominent member of the American Legion of Honor, member 
of the Grand Council and one of the Committee on Law. In the Ancient Order 
of United Workman and Independent Order of Odd Fellows, he has been an active and 
leading member for several years. In 1862 he was married to Miss Mary P. Chretien, 
and this happy union has given them one son, Mr. H. E. C. Feusier, a young man of 
much promise, graduate of the State University and by profession a civil engineer. 
Mr. E. D. Feusier has the reputation of being a good financier, shrewd business 
manager and safe counsellor in the pecuniary affairs of co-operative, organizations and 
especially the life endowment system. The table rates of expectancy and maturity of 
coupons^, prepared by him, have been adopted by similar organizations, and are con- 
sidered very correct and equitable. It is but just to give him the credit of being the 
chief originator, and entitled to the name of "Father" of the growing Order of tha 
Legion of the West. 


A great deal has been written about the professional tramp, a great lazy, dirty 
lummox who has fallen out with work and ekes out his miserable existence by strolling 
from place to place, begging or stealing according to his depth of degradation. This 
specimen of vagrant human nature is very largely confined to the country, or bangs 
around small towns and the rural hotels. But there is another fungus growth mainly 
confined to cities, that the country knows very little about, that is growing larger and 
larger with each passing month. The deadbeat is a product of city life and is harder 
to handle and cure than the tramp. He is a sort of stylish parasite who lives by 
sponging and borrowing. There are hundreds of men in this city quite well dressed, 
who "shin" from day to day, and never know in the morning how they will get through. 
They live by their wits and become expert in devising plausible expedients. 

We call attention to this variation of the human species, for they are just now 
becoming very troublesome to our fraternal Orders. 

The trouble with a good many people, fraters as well as others, is that they can't 
always get what they want, and are not satisfied with what they have. They see their 
own virtues and other people's vices with a magnifying glass, and turn the telescope the 
wrong end to when they look at their own vices and other people's virtues. They 
grumble when things go wrong, instead of going to work to help make them go right. 
They cry over spilled milk, when in all probability it has all the water it can stand 
already. We commend this class of people to the metaphysical healers, as needing 
treatment for a dreadfully morbid state of the mortal mind, whatever that may be. 

Grand Secretary of the Legion of the West 



The Order of the Royal Argosy was organized May 23, 1888, at San Francisco, 
and has had a remarkable growth, there being now over 2,000 members. It seems to 
combine features of the older organizations and is very popular. While it has some 
things in common with and possesses all the desirable elements composing all other 
fraternal societies, yet it has many advantages to offer which others do not possess, and 
is thoroughly adapted to the circumstances of the People. There are three classes of 
benefits, as follows: 

CLASS "A" — Payment to Heirs after Death of a Member. 

CLASS "B" — Payment of Coupons at stated intervals during Life. 

CLASS "C" — Payment of Benefits to Members in Sickness. 
From a circular issued from the Supreme Lodge we make the following exhibits. 


To unite fraternally all white persons of good moral character who are socially 
acceptable, of sound bodily health, and between the ages of 15 and 60 years. 

To furnish ENDOWMENT CERTIFICATES to its members; to provide for them 
in sickness or accident; to protect every member's family, or their nominees after death. 


is to pay to each member, while living, his Certificate in Equal Coupons at fixed 
intervals; and in the event of death, one coupon is payable to the nominee of the 
member, the certificate to be surrendered. Should a member live to receive one coupon 
by maturity and die any time before the second coupon matures, then the next maturing 
coupon Ijecomes due and will be paid to the member's nominee. 

In the Non-Examined Class, upon the death of a member, the nominees must keep 
up tlie payments until the maturity of the next coupon, when the amount will be paid 
to them upon surrender of the certificate. The assessment in this class for all over 
45 is fixed at the rate for that age. 


Any perrjon in good health may become a member by paying the initiation fee and 
one advanced assessment according to age, a certificate fee of $1, and if in the Examined 
Class, the Supreme Medical Examiner's fee of 25 cents. 


Lodges are organized by the Supreme President, or Deputies appointed for the 
purpose, on application of ten or more persons of proper age and physical qualification, 
who are of good moral and social standing, and agree by ballot, at the time of organiza- 
tion, to associate witli eanli other in fraternal relations. 


Shall be .SI 00, to be paid to the Organizing Officer before the Lodge is instituted. 

The Supreme Secretary and Supreme Treasurer are under bonds of $10,000 each, 
their sureties justifying in double the amount, on good security. All officers of the 
Order who have charge of any of its funds are required to give sufficient bonds for the 
faithful discharge of their duties. These bonds may be increased from time to time as 
the numerical strength of the Order increases.

Importers, 9 to 15 Beale Street, San Francisco. 



PROTECTION Degree Class, is to protect every member's family or their nomineea 
after death, from One to Five Thousand Dollars, which shall be paid upon satisfac- 
tory proof of death; provided, however, that should a death occur when one assessment 
on each member would not amount to §5,000, then the sum paid shall be a proportionate 
amount of one assessment on each member in good standing. 


AID Degree Class, is to pay the living members in equal Coupons, at fixed intervals, 
from One to Seven Hundred Dollars, and in case of death the next maturing Coupon 
shall be paid to the deceased member's nominees, or in the Unexamined Class, at the 
maturity of coupon. 


RELIEF Degree Class, is for the relief of members who are disabled by sickness or 
accident from following their usual avocation, in sums from Five to Twenty Dollars 
per week, not to exceed Twenty weeks in any one year. 

All payments made on account of fund in Relief Degree Class are held and reported 
separately and distinctly, and are used for paying sick benefits only, and no assess- 
ment is called as long as there is $200 left in the hands of the Supreme Treasurer, suffi- 
cient to pay ten Relief Degree benefits in full. 

Every Aid Degree Certificate is divided in Ten Equal Coupons, and the first coupons 
mature at a stated period, and each one the same time thereafter. 

reserve assessment fund 

Five per cent, of the gross amount of every assessment called by the Supreme 
Lodge shall be retained as a separate fund, to be called "The Reserve Fund," the 
object of which fund shall be: 

1. To limit the number of assessments to be paid per annum. 

2. To provide against a sudden increase of mortality in case of epidemics or other- 

3. To completely insure the stability and success of the Order. 

All moneys received on account of this fund are retained by the Supreme Treasurer 
as a separate and distinct account, to the benefits and privileges of which all members 
in good standing shall be entitled under such laws and regulations as the Supreme 
Lodge may determine. 

The funds of each class shall be kept separate, and members will only be assessed 
for the classes to which they belong. 

Applicants may join one or more classes as they elect. 

It is a Popular National Beneficial Order that gives Protection from One Thousand 
to Five Thousand Dollars at actual cost, payable to the family or heirs after death. 

Pays benefits to its members of from One Thousand to Seven Thousand Dollars at 
stated periods during their lifetime, and paya weekly Sick Benefits of from Five Dollars 
to Twenty Dollars per week.

It has been strenuously alleged by the regular insurance companies that tlie co-op- 
erative societies are not built on sound business principles. That is, no difference is 
made in the amount of assessment for the disparity of age, or that the amount based 
on theage of a member is not raised as his risk increases witli advancing years. That 
the effort in some associations to cure this supposed defect by an annual advance in 
the rate of assessment is open to the objection that the heaviest payments will fall at a 
period in the life of man when he will be tlie least able to earn money and meet his 
obligations. But the same objection might be alleged against all life insurance. Waiv- 
ing all this aside, however, the best way to settle tlie question at issue is by experience. 
In spite of all these supposed defects, there stands the fact that the co-operative prin- 
ciple is rapidly growing in popular favor. The Stock Exchange of New York has for a 
long time carried on a co-operative life insurance business. Business organizations all 
over the country have made it an auxiliary. The Freemasons and Odd Fellows have 
their relief associations, in whicli life insurance, by means of assessments at the death of 
each member, is made a prominent feature. Many of tlie labor guilds, like the Locomo- 
tive Engineers, have adopted the principle. The most successful of these societies have 
been those fraternal Orders that recognize the need of a stronger bond than a mere mer- 
cantile one, and have closed the principle with the fascinating mystery of signs and 
passwords, ritualism and fraternal sentiment.

The difference between this system of endowments and reg- 
ular life insurance is: That the former pays to the holder, while 
LIVING, the face of the Bond or Bonds, while the latter pays to 
his legatee the face of the policy after death. 


Any person may become a Bondholder by paying a mem- 
bership fee of $5.00 on each separate and distinct Bond applied 

Any person can hold as high as Ten Bonds, of $500 each, in 
the League, except the Officers or Directors, not one of whom 
can, at any time, hold more than Five Bonds of $500 each, and 
no Bond held by them shall number lower than 25.

Assessments will be levied according to the following table : 

Class B, payable in 3 years . . . . . $2.50 

" C, " 3i " - 2.25 

" D, " 4 " ..... 2.00 

" E, '' 4i ------ - 1.75 

" F, " 5 " ..... 1.50 

Assessments shall be due and payable on the first day of 
each month. The first being due and payable on the first day 
of the month succeeding the issue of the Bond or Certificate. 
Whilst it is true that no assessment is due until the first of the 
month succeeding the issue of the Bond or Certificate, still the 
Bond or Certificate begins to mature from the date of the first 
payment, whether that payment be for a month or the fractional 
part of a month. 



Your monthly assessment in class B for a $500 Bond is $2.50. Your Bond, for 
instance, is issued on the 10th of April. By paying from the 10th of April to the 
1st of May, 20 days, your Bond would mature 20 days earlier than if you deferred 
the payment until the 1st of May. $1.65 will carry you from the date of Bond to 
the 1st of May. Remember, that this point is made in your favor, maturing your 
Bond 20 DAYS KARLIER than it would otherwise mature. As the prime object of 
your membership in the League is the maturement of your Bond or Certificate, the 
earlier your monthly payments begin the earlier will the Bond mature.

Ten Bonds [can be matured as quickly as one, by paying ten times what you 
pay for one. 


One Bond in Class B is $2.50 per month. Ten Bonds in Class B is $25.00 per 
month, thus maturing 10 Bonds in 3 years as you would mature one Bond in 3 


At any time a member who has no asssessments unpaid Tmay assign his or 
her Bond to any other person by the payment of a fee of $2.50 to the Secretar)'. 
Said fee to be paid before the transfer of the Certihcate. Any Certificate trans- 
ferred , except upon open conditions, shall be null and void. Upon the presen- 
tation of a Certificate or Bond for transfer, the Secretary shall attach thereto a 
transfer Certificate, setting forth the name and residence of the new owner of same. 
Fees for transfer shall be placed in the Endowment Fund. 


The proceeds from assessments and any accumulation of interest, derived 
from investment of assessment moneys, and transfer fees constitute the Endow- 
ment Fund, from which all payments for maturing Bonds are made, and the 
Endowment Fund cannot be used for any other purpose whatever. Bonds are 
paid on the day they are due, and every Bond is $500. 


As no risk is incurred by the death of a member, no Bond being paid on 
death, but at maturity ont^y, and therefore no epidemic or suicide can work any 
harm, nor fraud be perpetrated, no Medical Examination is Required, and persons 
who would be debarred by reason of poor health can enjoy the benefits of mem- 


There shall be appointed annually by the Board of Directors an Auxiliary 
Board, consisting of 20 members of the League, to assist the management to act in 
conjunction with the Directors in advancing the interests of the League, and to 
increase the membership roll. 


When we have several members in a town arrangements are made with a local 
bank to receive and receipt for the payment of assessments, thus saving our mem- 
bers the trouble and expense of remitting. 



It is well kuown that in all fraternal societies the larger percentage of mem- 
"bers lapse each year, and their places are taken by new members. For instance, 
in ordinar}' Endowment Associations, 80 per cent, lapse each year, thus you will 
see that our League can fulfill its mission without any danger of failure, and of 
the original numbers but a small percentage are left at the end of three years. 


Suspension deprives a member from all rights and privileges of membership, 
but reinstatement may be effected within one calendar month from date of sus- 
pension, by the payment of all assessments that may be due. 


All Bondholders, after the expira ion of Two Years, who from unfaith in the 
League, or from inability to meet the required payments, will, upon legal transfer 
of Bond or Bonds to the League, receive therefrom the amount of money paid on 
said Bond or Bonds, provided, however, that the holder of such Bond or Bonds 
shall give the l^eague six months notice of his or her intention to make said legal 


The Secretary and Treasurer are under large Bonds, to insure the perfect 
safety of the funds. 


The League is the result of close observation and successful experience in 
every sphere of Life and Endowment Insurance. 

It is so constructed and guarded that neither partiality nor dishonesty can 
ever characterize its management. 

It is in the hands of Directors who are determined to push tts claims and 
make it successful. 

It is a Fraternal as well as a Benevolent League ; many a poor man has, by 
paying his pittance of a couple of dollars per month, thus succeeded in securing 
for himself a home, whereas it would have been impossible to have secured one in 
any other manner. 

Many persons do not care to take any life insurance, because they have no 
one to leave the insurance to, or they have already amply provided therefor. Here, 
you ALONE are benefited, and no unuecessar}- burden is imposed on you ; it is a 
mutual system by which every one gains. 

You can only pay a comparatively small portion of what you receive, for the 
continual increase in the membership, together with eventual lapses, answer the 
question how it can be done to pay back more than is invested by the member. 

We want it distinctly understood, that the League is not responsible for rep- 
resentations made by Agents not in strict harmony with Circulars and Bonds 
issued bv the League. These are free to all, and there is no reason why any one 
should claim that things were misrepresented to him by the agent, particularly 
when parties are called upon, in our folders, to examine our plans before giving 
agents their applications.

This is a Jewish Order, and consequeutly open only to the " Sons of the Covenant" 
(B'nai B'rith). It was instituted in the city of New York in the year 1843 and at once 
grew rapidly in favor, and gained adherents among all classes of Israelites. The 
spreading of it among all classes was exactly what its founders and promoters aimed at, 
and ardently hoped for. It may perhaps be well for the general public to know, that 
the Unity of Israel was not transplanted to American soil by her sons coming from all 
parts of the civilized world. The meeting here of these heterogeneous parts produced 
ratlier unpleasant friction and the Jew of one country looked upon his brother from 
other lands with either distrust or contempt. Their ways differed, their tastes were 
dissimilar, and their views of the world were not of like breadth and depth. Even 
their commoa heritage the Covenant of holy writ was being diversely interpreted, the 
sons of northern Germany having become ardent devotees to the "Spirit of the Times" 
against the combined forces of other lands who, with great tenacity, clung to traditional 
notes and most reverentially worshipped the Spirit of the Past. 

Such condition of affairs certainly called for some remedy, as otherwise the 
situation would have been unbearable. The remedy was supposed to be in the 
founding of an association with a platform broad enough and long enough for all to 
stand on without crowding one another. The architects and builders were all good and 
true men and stai-tsd the work with an enthusiaera which lasted all through life. One of 
the founders is the present Chief Executive of the Order, and he has occupied this and 
other honorable positions for a number of years, which certainly puts the loyalty and 
zeal of brother Julius Bien beyond question. The Order is divided into nine districts, 
the Pacific Coast forming District No. 4. Each district is governed by its grand body, 
which is controlled and restricted in its sphere only by a written constitution 
emanating from a supreme body, known as the Constitution Grand Lodge. The C. G. L. 
meets from time to time, and amends the Constitution at will. The Order was intro- 
duced on the Coast by the establishment of Ophir Lodge No. 21, in the year 1855. 
Wm. Steinhart, a well-known merchant of this city, having been its first presiding officer. 
Other Lodges soon followed, and the admission became so large, that the impractica- 
bility of governing this outpost through District No. 1 (New York) at once became 
apparent, so District No. 4 was established in the year 1863; and Jacob Greenebaum, 
a gentleman well known throughout the State, was made its first Grand President. 
The institution has prospered here in a manner to make its managers feel proud. An 
endowment life insurance has I)een added in the year 1874, and since then the District's 
obligation raised from one to two thousand dollars. Enormous sums of money are 
being paid annually as sick benefits by the various Lodges, and the spirit of goodwill and 
brotherly love often makes law and precedence inoperative. The well known B'nai 
B'rith Hall is the property of the Order. The incentive to the building of the Hebrew 
Orphan Asylum, the pride of the Pacific Coast Israelites, was given by the B'nai B'rith, 
and even at the present moment the establishment of a free Pol)'technic School is 
earnestly spoken of. The gentlemen who have presided over District No. 4 have 
uniformly been men representative in their characrer and well known in the community 
for their integrity and public spirit. Grand Secretary Louis Blank, a gentleman of the 
highest order of ability, honesty and administrative skill, has done much for this Order. 
The present Executive Officers are all gentlemen of the highest intelligence, administering 
their trust honestly and well. The Order at large is doing most nobly, a fact which is 
fully attested to by the many magnificent institutions which it is fostering at great 
expense of time and money. All over the United States we find Orphan Asylums, 
Homes for Aged and Infirm, etc. , etc. 

About five years ago the Executive Committee made a great strike by successfully 
introducing the Order in Germany (a most fertile field). Its use to that country was 
wonderful, and it soon became necessary to give our German brethren home govern- 
ment. Consequently District No. 8 was established, comprising the German Empire. 
Since then its aims and objects became somewhat contagious, for about six months ago 
Lodges were instituted in Egypt, and even in Jerusalem the very cradle of the race. 
This was followed by the entrance into the Order of the Zion Educational Society of 
Roumaniaen masse, bringing to it a membership sufficiently large to be entitled to self- 
government. They now constitute the youngest district, Zion No. 9. The European 
brethren have so far striven to give due recognition to the educational mission of tht

Order, and if possible make it paramount in their work. As a consequence, we rind 
lectures by celebrated scholars as well as musicales by celebrated virtuosos constantly 
on the order of the day. Such, in brief, is the birth, rise, scope and prosperity of the 
Order B'nai B'rith. Its future is radiant with the sunshine of prosperity.

Brethren, as amid the varying concerns of life you pluck here and there the fruit 
of gain, or get hoisted on the boom, fail not to turn aside to inquire if behind misfor- 
tune's vail the hand of charity may be opened, and the burdened heart may be made 
lighter. Let it not truthfully be said that our profession of charity is a mockery. 
Upon this foundation may we build, with a confident assurance that life's joys will be 
made sweeter thereby, and brighter glories await us in the hereafter, which soon, at 
best, must follow. — Masonic Record.

In 1869 a capacious and elegant structure was located near Vallejo, in Solano 
county, California, and in October, 1870, it was dedicated and opened under the aus- 
pices of the Grand Lodge, and entitled the " Good Templars' Home for Orphans." Its 
title is not meant to convey any idea of exclusiveneso as to the class admitted to its 
sheltering offices. On the contrary, it is open to all; the only passport required at its 
portals is to be a homeless orphan child. Children under twelve years of age are received 
and cared for, and over two hundred orphaned children are now being cared for within 
its walls. This kindly office has been extended to over twelve hundred homeless chil- 
dren in the past. The buildings are sightly, capacious and pleasantly located. The 
Home is under the general management of a Board of Trustees and Board of Lady Man- 
agers — the former comprising nine gentlemen of the Order, who have charge of the 
buildings, grounds (120 acres^ and financial matters, while the Board of Lady Managers 
is composed of eight prominent lady members of the Order, selected from various por- 
tions of the State, and has charge of the internal and domestic relations of the instiW- 
tion. A Graded School, under the " Public School System " of the State, is taught by 
a corps of competent teachers, in a commodious two-story school building located in the 
Home grounds. The school building is divided into four classrooms, was erected at an 
expense of $5,000, and was formally dedicated October 5, 1881. Upwards of $300,000 
has been expended in the erection, care and maintenance of this institution. The Home 
is supported and sustained by voluntary contributions, and those benevolently disposed 
are requested to favor it by contributing in its behalf. See page

W. W. TURNBULL, R. W. G. T. 



The following sketch is taken from the Rescue, the official organ of the I. O. G. T. : 
"Bro. TurnbuU was born April 29, 1841, at Jedburg, the county seat of Roxburgsliire, 
on the northern sicies of the borders of England and Scotland, a part of the country 
which for many years was in constant turmoil. He received the rudiments of a 
serviceable education at the Nest Academy in his native town. Leaving school when 
but 13 years of age, he spent two years or more in a country lawyer's office. In 1856 
he removed to Edinburgh and entered the office of one of the railways, in which he 
found promotion from time to time, ami in which service he remained for 17 years. 

During his early manhood, Bro. TurnliuU was a member of the Total Abstinence 
Society and attended regularly their ' four-penny Saturday evening soirees,' besides 
being connected with a Temperance Choral Union, and in this way he kept abreast of 
the temperance movenu:nt. 

In 1871 he attended the Grand Lodge of Scotland as a representative from his 
Lodge, and was elected as Grand Assistant Secretary. In 1873 he was elected Grand 
Secretary, but during the first year did not devote his whole time to the work, as he 
still resided inEdinbvirgh, while the Grand Lodge office was located in Glasgow. He 
later on removed to Glasgow, where he has since resided, and devoted himself wholly 
to the service of the Order. He was not a member of the R. W. G. L. prior to the dis- 
ruption, but the following year — 1877 — he attended the Glasgow session of the 
R. W. G. L. of the world, and attended every subsequent session. 

He was a prominent member of the Boston Union Conference, and consistently 
labored thereafter to bring about the union of the Order, and did signal service to bring 
about the union in his branch of the Order. His selection, therefore, to the second 
highest place on the accomplishment of reunion was but a fitting recognition of his 
services, as also a compliment to a deserving brother. The death of Bro. Finch and 
tiro. Turnbull's succession is too well known to need repetition. On the assembling of 
the R. W. G. L. in Chicago in May last the vmiversal expression was, ' Well done!' and 
the feeling, that having borne the burdens of official care and so faithfully dischai-ged 
them by succession only, he should now receive the recognition of the Body by an 
undisputed election to the highest office in the gift of the Order, and he was accordingly 
elected R. W. G. Templar by a unanimous vote." See page 325. 


There is no man in this State occupying a more prominent position in fraternal and 
beneficiary Orders than the subject of our sketch. He has been closely identified with 
the Knights of Pythias, and is a Past Grand Chancellor. 

He is also a member of the I. O. O. F., Improved O. R. M., A. O. U. W., and the 
I. O. G. T., having promptly "passed the chairs " in each. He is a member of the 
several G rand Lodges, and has been a representative to the Grand Lodge in each Order. 
He is chairman of one of the most'important committees of the GrandLodge, A.O.U.W., 
and is a past Great Sachem of the Improved O. R. M. 

His chief fi-aternal labors, however, have been in behalf of the I. O. G. T., with 
which he has been connected for more than twenty years, and in which he rose to the 
proud distinction of R. W. G. T. — the presiding officer of the Supreme Lodge of the 
world — and to which he was thrice elected at Topeka, Kansas, Charleston, S. C, and 
Chicago, III., declining a re-election last year at Washington, D. C. 

At present he is the Grand Secretary of the I. O. G. T. of this State, and his influ- 
ence on that Order can never be fully appreciated and comprehended, under his guid- 
ance the Order having nearly tripled in membership and quadrupled in finances. 

He has a fine address, martial bearing, and is an eloquent and brilliant speaker. 
His scholastic attainments, social standing and ripe experience in a number of our lead- 
ing fraternal societies give him great influence and prominence. He is courteous to 
everyone with whom he comes in contact, and is possessed of that clear intellect and 
coolness of judgment and self-reliance that make him a safe leader in times of great 
excitement. He makes uji his mind what course is right, and neither friends nor foes 
can change him from it. Perseverance and tenacity are leading traits in his character, 
and to this he owes his successful career in Society affairs. Happy in his marital rela- 
tions, honored and esteemed among his associates, he has blessed humanity.

Thia patriotic and humane organization was organized April 6, 1866, in Decatur, 
III. A surgeon in the Army, 14th Illinois Infantry, Dr. B. F. Stephenson, was the prime 
mover. He had given the subject much thought and laid the foundation of this grand 
order on the corner-stone of fraternity, patriotism and charity. The second post was 
formed at Springfield, Illinois, the home of Abraham Lincoln. It spread with aston- 
ishing rapidity, and on July 12, 1866, a department convention was held in Springfield 
and John M. Palmer elected the first Department Commander. At that convention the 
following resolution wa3 adopted: 

Whereas, The members of the Grand Army of the Republic recognize in Major 
B. F. Stephenson, of Springfield, 111 , the head and front of this organization; be it, 

Resolved, That for energy, loyalty and perseverance manifested in organizing the 
Grand Army of the Republic, he is entitled to the gratitude of all loyad men, and we, 
as soldiers, tender him our thanks and pledge him our friendship at all times, and under 
all circumstances. 

The first National Convention was held at Indianapolis, Ind. Representatives were 
present from various States. General Palmer presided and General Stephen A. Hulburt 
of Illinois was elected Commander-in-Chief, and Dr. Stephenson, Adjutant General. 
The objects of the order cannot be more briefly stated than from the ai-ticles and 
regulations : 

1. To preserve and strengthen those kind and fraternal feelings which bind 
together the soldiers, sailors and marines who united to suppress the late rebellion, 
and to perpetuate the memory and history of the dead. 

2. To assist such former comrades in arms as need help and protection and to 
extend needful aid to the widows and orphans of those who have fallen. 

3. To maintain true allegiance to the United States of America, based upon a 
paramount respect for, and fidelity to, its Constitution and Laws, to discountenance 
whatever tends to weaken loyalty, incites to insurrection, treason or rebellion, or in any 
manner impairs the efficiency and permanency of our free institutions; and to encourage 
the spread of universal liberty, equal rights and justice to all men. 

Soldiers and sailors of the United States Army, Navy or Marine Corps, who served 
between April 12, 1861, and April 29, 1865, in the war for the suppression of the 
Rebellion, and thosehavingbeenhonorably discharged therefrom after such service, and 
of such State regiments as were called into active service and subject to the orders of 
U. S. General Officers, between the dates mentioned, shall be eligible to membership 
in the Grand Army of the Republic. No person shall be eligible to membership who 
has at any time borne arms against the United States. 

The rules and regulations originally issued contained a preamble and twenty-three 
articles. They have been materially changed since then. 

The second National Encampment was a very important body, and met in Indepen- 
dence Hall, Philadelphia, June 15, 1868. General John A. Logan, who was always 
a warm and ardent supporter of the organization, was elected Commander-in-Chief, 
General N. P. Chipmau, now a resident of Red Blufi^, Cal., Adjutant General. 

The government and regulations are military in their character, but there is no order 
that seems to be more popular or dearer to the hearts of its members than the Grand 
Army of the Republic. Men occupying the highest social and political distinction have 
a pride and enthusiasm in meeting their comrades in the lodgeroom and recounting 
their marches, privations and victories. This order has deservedly earned the name o\ 
being benevolent, generous and patriotic. There are now over 500,000 members, and 
it may be expected that, as an order, they have reached the highest number, as each 
year the battle-scarred veterans are laying aside their armor^ and their names can only 
live in the memories of a grateful people who are enjoying the fruits of their bravery 
and patriotism.

As a citizen and soldier, Col. Smedberg has gained a high reputation. As Depart- 
ment Commander of the Grand Army of California, during the National Encampment 
in this State, he showed tact and signal ability. We herewith give a succinct record of 
his services : Colonel, lately commanding the Second Artillery Regiment; Adjutant- 
General, Department of California, Grand Army of the Republic; Recorder of the 
Loyal Legion of the United States, Commandery of California; member of the Military 
Association of the Pacific; of the Sooiety of the Army of the Potomac, and of the Fifth 
Corps Society, Seventh Regiment War Veterans. Colonel Smedberg is a soldier by 
profession and inclination, and the greater part of his busy life has been spent in the^ 
service. He wears the Seventh Regiment medal of honor for over 20 years' service. 

Born in New York City on the 19th of March, 1839, he entered Columbia College,. 
New York, in 1853, graduating in June, 1857. He enlisted in Company F of the New- 
York Seventh Regiment in July, 1858, remaining with it until 1860, when he was 
honorably discharged on account of his removal to Washington, D. C, where he joined 
the National Rifles in 1861, and resided until the breaking out of the war. He enlisted 
in the United States Service on the 15th of April, as a volunteer and private in Com- 
pany A, Third Battalion, District of Columbia Volunteers; was promoted Corporal,, 
and was honorably discharged on the 4th of July, on acceptance of a commission in 
the United States Army, serving in the Potomac and Patterson campaigns. 

He is a member of Georg3 H. Thomas Post, No. 2; Fidelity Lodge, Knights of 
Honor; Fidelity Lodge, Ancient Order United Workmen; Washington Camp, Patriotic 
Order Sons of America, and the Bohemian Club and San Francisco Art Association. 
See page 333. 


There are few men who have filled responsible positions of private and public trusts 
with more skill and success than Mr. Goodman. , 

At the age of 20 years he accepted a position in railroad service, and during most 
of his life has been a General Ticket and Passenger Agent for extensive lines of rail- 
road, and is now at the head of the Southern Pacific, Central Pacific and Occidental 
and Oriental Steamship Companies. In the war of the Rebellion, he served two years 
as a brave and skillful cavalry officer. 

Mr. Goodman is a member of George H. Thomas Post, No. 2, G. A. R. , of San 
Francisco, and Past Vice-Commander of the Department of the Loyal Legion of the 
United States, and Past-Grand Commander of the Department of California, G. A. R. 

He was made a Master Mason in Mount Moriah Lodge, No. 44, San Francisco, in 
1859, and exalted to the sublime Royal Arch Degree in California Chapter, No. 5, Saa 
Francisco, in 1866. He has ascended the mystic stairway to the 3od degree passive, 
A. &. A. Scottish Rite and Past Venerable Grand Master of the Grand Consistory of 

He has a massive brain, fine sensibility and affable manner. Benevolence, gener- 
osity and strict integrity, are leading traits in his character. He seems to possess an 
intuitive knowledge of business relations in railroad affairs, and his keen perception 
enables him to detect fraud and imposition, whilst his magnaminit^' is extended to the 
weak and unfortunate. He has won a high and honorable place as a big-hearted and 
diicreet public servant, and his career in fraternal societies has brightened homes and 
lightened heavy hearts.

The antiquity of Forestry is not positively known. It is of record that Coiart No. 1, 
at Leeds, England in 1813, was the foundation of this great and powerful order. On 
the 4th, 5th and 6th of August, 1834, there was a great delegate meeting held at 
Rochdale, when the following address was promulgated by this Executive Council : 
" From tills time henceforth the Order of Ancient Forester.s will take the precedence of 
all similar institutions, and the members of the first Executive Council hope to see that 
day when the Order shall find the most eminent for virtue, piety, learning and heroism 
of our countrymen, and those who visit our shores, proud of being ranked among its 
member.?. To faithfully, honestly and zealously perform our duties, and to live in the 
esteem of our brethren, is our anxious hope ; and we pray Heaven to guide us aright 
and cause our brotherhood to flourish and be respected." 

Court Good Speed, No. 201, of the Ancient Order of Royal Foresters, was established 
in 1830, in Philadelphia, and admitted as a Subsidiary Court of the Ancient Order of 
Foresters in 1836. The U. S. Subsidiary Court was formed December 29, 1874. Of 
the forty -three courts in existence at that time, one of these. Court Pv,obin Hood, No. 
5931, is held in San Francisco, the conditions of membership are "no person shall be 
initiated into any Court who is under eighteen years of age or over forty -five (except 
as an honorary member) unless he be a white male, of good moral character, 
sound in health, free from disease, and a believer in a Supreme Being. " There are 
several auxiliaries, viz: the Knights of Sherwood Forest, Uniformed; Circles which 
admit females known as Companions of the Forest, and Juvenile Societies to which Sons 
of Foresters are admitted. This order is now firmly established in thirty States and 
Territories of this Union, and the membership is increasing rapidly. It is a social, 
fraternal and beneficiary order, having a system of sick benefits of a regular stipend 
per week with medical attendance and medicines free. There is also an Endowment 
Fund, which can be taken at the option of a member divided into four classes of $500, 
$1,000, $1,500 and $2,000. Forestry forms a conspicuous part of the higher civilization 
of the nineteenth century. Its antiquity, its huge proportions, and close fraternal ties 
"in relieving distress, aiding the weak and comforting the mourner," have given it an 
establishment that will last while men are humane. There are 900,000 Foresters hold- 
ing membership in all parts of the world, with a system of government that gives to the 
individual member equal rights and privileges, and substantial recognition under 
severe penalties from any Subsidiary Court wheresoever found. 

During the last year all Subsidiary Courts have been ordered to strike the words 
"white male person" from their constitution, by the high Court of England. This 
mandate has created a commotion in the United States and it seems inevitable that 
there will be an independent Court established.

Where a Lodge is touched by the dry-rot the cause is not far to seek. It is usually 
found in a disposition to regard the Order as a business organization, ignoring fraternity 
and laxity in observing and enforcing the laws. Any Lodge that does either will not 
prosper, and if guilty of both offenses may as well get measured for its shroud. A 
member who is not willing to meet the calls and do the work demanded by a true 
fraternity is of little or no account; indeed, is a source of positive weakness to the 
Order. If all our members were of such material we should go swiftly to pieces. One 
such member in a Lodge is as bad as a rotten apple in a barrel of apples. He taints 
all the rest. 

And then to disregard law is not only to violate a solemn obligation, but to substi- 
tute anarchy for good government. Societies cannot exist without law any more than 
nations, States and municipalities. And where law is a dead letter, not even a decent 
scarecrow, it is worse than none. 


It would be a matter of surprise to find out how little many of the mighty fraternal 
army in California would have to leave behind were they suddenly called to join the silent 
majority. And yet they are not impecunious or really poor. They have good heads, 
strong arms, deft fingers that are their capital in trade. So long as they remain intact 
they have no fear of want, but it is obvious that their expectations are hung on a frail 
contingency, for were any one of these organs to fail they would be in want. Thousands 
of good, honest people are vibrating between a good meal to-day and the bark of the wolf 
to-morrow. The statement has been made that of the death claims paid by the various 
beneficiary fraternities to the families of deceased brothers, fully four-fifths of them had 
but little beside what had been guaranteed their heirs in this way. And yet this is not 
enough to keep a family long, no matter how economically they may live.

(Past Dist. Secretary A. O. F.) 

The subject of our skeich was born under the " Flag that rules the seas, " June 
20, 1 S49 ; came to San Francisco with his parents at the early age of two years. He 
gra<luated from the Union Grammar School in 1862. He is a man who has rendered 
grcai service in advancing the interests of fratcnal organizations of the Pacific Coast. 
He joined the A. 0. F. by being a charter member of Court Euclein, No. 6932, in 
September, 1882; was created a Past Chief Ranger in 1884; has held the office of 
Secretary ever since ; was unanimously elected a delegate to the Sub. High Court in 
Detroit, Mich., August, 1885, and Milwaukee, 1889; was elected Dist. Secretary in 
March, 1887 ; held the position until October same year, declining a re-election, owing 
to the increase of private business. 

He is at present J. P. C. R. of Court Stanford, No. 7563, A. 0. F., and Secretary 
of the Past Chief Rangers Association, No. 1, of California. Bro. Johnston is also a

elected Recorder of the Lodge, and has been re-elected sixteen consecutive terms. He 
was made a P. M. W. at the Grand Lodge of A. O. U. W. in 1885. 

Bro. Johnston is in the prime and vigor of manhood ; a forcible speaker, pleasing 
address and companionable, and has a bright future as a leader and wise coun.«ellor 
among Fraternal Orders, as well as in his business outlook.
